MRCS: Your RoadMap to Surgical Excellence

The first and foremost step in earning a place among the surgical experts is to enrol in a PG course. But this is not the only way to the top, there are several routes to becoming a world-class surgeon, and MRCS is hailed as the best recognition for GMC registration and a job at the NHS.

What is MRCS

The MRCS exam, short for Membership in the Royal College of Surgeons conducted by the Royal College of Surgeons. It can be taken by international medical graduates who meet the eligibility criteria with aspirations of practising as surgeons in the UK.

MRCS Exam Format

MRCS consists of two exams, namely MRCS Part A and Part B. Each tests the theoretical and practical prowess of the candidates. MRCS Part A thoroughly tests a candidate’s knowledge of surgical procedures through a general written examination.

MRCS Part B is an objectively structured clinical examination (OSCE) that tries to assess the competency of the candidate in day-to-day clinical processes by using 8 knowledge stations and 10 skill stations.

One can only take the subsequent exam after successfully completing the previous exams.
