Become an RCPI Examiner

Becoming an RCPI Examiner will help you to improve your own teaching practice, as you will be able to give in-depth exam advice to Trainees who are preparing for MRCPI exams. You will also gain a deeper understanding of the clinical skills and acumen you should expect from a Trainee exiting BST and entering HST.

To examine for RCPI, you will need to:

  • hold a substantive consultant post or have retired from clinical practice within the last 12 months
  • be a Member or Fellow of RCPI in good standing or a Fellow of an equivalent college
  • be on a professional competence scheme (as examiners are awarded CPD points)

If you do not meet one of the above points, you can provide a CV to be reviewed and considered.
