Little improvement in international graduate scores on CSA, show new figures


Story continues.... Racism vs non racism People are comparing MRCP paces with Csa. Are they suggesting that in their opinion the 3 years GP training is a wasteful exercise? MRCP can be done without any training but CSA is done after 3 years training at par with white graduates. At the end of 3 years training, why do such differences exist and why has the college and the deaneries done nothing about it? If it were the case of white UK graduates would these bodies have kept quiet? When CSA was introduced, a few white candidates were affected and the RCGP refunded the whole fee and gave a free attempt in which all those failed candidates managed to pass. Is it not discrimination?
