Intercollegiate MRCS Examination –Outside the UK2011
2011 and beyond

MRCS part I is the basic paper covering anatomy, physiology and pathology
Part II is the clinical paper exam which cover the applied surgical science
Part III is the Viva + clinical + communication skills


Part A MRCS = Paper I + Paper II as above
Part B MRCS = Viva +OSCE


Part A :
is a four hour MCQ examination consisting of two papers, each of two
hours’ duration, taken on the same day. The mark for each paper will be
combined to give a total mark for Part A. The papers will cover generic
surgical sciences and applied knowledge, including the core knowledge
required in all nine specialties


Part B :
consists of three components: structured interviews; and clinical and
communication skills components that are unchanged from the current
Intercollegiate MRCS examination

The structured interviews consist of six interviews each lasting ten
minutes in the following areas:
1. applied physiology
2. critical care
3. applied anatomy, including three-dimensional anatomy
4. surgical anatomy
5. applied pathology
6. generic clinical skills.


The clinical component consists of short cases organised into four 15-
minute bays. The bays will require candidates to be able to diagnose, elicit
physical signs from and be familiar with the treatment of patients with
conditions in the following areas: trauma and orthopaedics; vascular;
endocrine, breast, skin, head and neck; and trunk and groin. The clinical
component is identical for the revised and the current Intercollegiate
MRCS examination.

The communication skills component consists of two bays with a total
assessment time of 30 minutes. One bay will assess the giving of
information and one will assess taking and presenting a history. The
communication skills component will be held at the same time as the
clinical component. The communication skills component is identical for
the revised and the current Intercollegiate MRCS examination
