RCGP reviewing whether MRCGP exam is ‘fit for purpose’


(1) Allowing more non-medics to become doctors and then GPs seems to become an inevitable reality . This government must bear the responsibility on all the consequences, whatever they are. (2) One examination to judge is always subjected to controversies. Unconscious bias was the legal diagnosis from court on MRCGP examination. Inaction to, at least , provide an alternative is in fact continuing to erode the credibility( whatever is left)of the college . (3) Funding more education programmes to help new MRCGPs for further development in general practice is more essential. Learning never stops after completing an examination.
