RCGP reviewing whether MRCGP exam is ‘fit for purpose’


I commend BAPIO (British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin) for taking the RCGP to High Court over the acting CSA exam. A moral victory was needed to expose how failure to control unconscious bias may have resulted in the huge disparity between white and non white doctor pass rates, which had not existed when real patient video consultations were used to assess doctors for the MRCGP exam. It is incredulous that the acting CSA exam is still operating in the 21st century. IMO Martin Luther King Jr would be turning in his grave.
