MRCS examinations to be held at KIMS

The intercollegiate final MRCS (Membership of Royal College of Surgeons) Examinations will be held on Friday and Saturday at Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences (KIMS), a statement said.

Close to 100 doctors from all over India and South Asian countries will be taking the final component of the MRCS exam. Nearly 25 senior surgeons and examiners from United Kingdom will conduct the examination.

“Due to European Union laws and recent changes to immigration rules, avenues for doctors from Indian subcontinent are almost frozen in the UK. In this scenario, this examination is a boon for doctors intending to get this MRCS Diploma in India itself without the need for travelling thousands of miles abroad to obtain this degree,” said Convener and Host Examiner, P. Raghu Ram.

The Royal College has been conducting the FRCS examinations in the UK for several centuries. Earlier, the practice was to appear for the Fellow of Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) examinations directly.

However, it’s mandatory now to appear for the MRCS exam before appearing for FRCS.

The president of Royal College, Edinburgh, Mike Lavelle-Jones, will be present to oversee the examination.
