The Royal Colleges

The medical Royal Colleges are independent professional bodies governed by councils elected by the members. Membership of the Colleges is obtained by examination and is a virtually essential prerequisite for hospital specialist practice in the UK National Health Service. Some of the Colleges have been in existence for centuries while others have been founded more recently reflecting increasing specialisation in medical practice. The Royal Colleges have a role in the quality of practice of their speciality recognised by government. They carry out this role by conducting their examinations, accrediting hospital training posts and providing some teaching and research. Doctors wishing to become specialists in the UK must undertake a training programme approved by the relevant college which makes a recommendation to the Specialist Training Authority when the programme has been successfully completed.

Royal College examinations

These examination are conducted regularly in the UK and in some cases overseas. Information on the examinations is available from the colleges. The format and timing of the examinations varies widely from College to College. Eligibility of doctors to sit the examinations is decided on a case by case basis by the relevant College.
