The MRCP PACES – 4th and 5th November 2023
The MRCP(UK) Part 2 Clinical Examination (PACES) is designed to test the clinical knowledge and skills of trainee doctors who hope to enter higher specialist training (ST3). The exam sets rigorous standards to ensure that trainees are competent across a range of skills and ready to provide a high standard of care to patients.
MRCP(UK) develops and delivers membership and specialty examinations that are recognised around the world as quality benchmarks of medical knowledge and clinical skills. Good examinations play an important role in the protection of patients by ensuring that doctors have the appropriate high level of knowledge and skill. They also give every doctor a fair chance to demonstrate his or her level of ability – no matter when or where the examination is taken.
The exams are mapped to the UK core medical training curriculum and knowledge of this and UK national guidelines should form part of your preparation for the exams.
