An examination centre for the Member of Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), which is the eligibility test for the prestigious Fellowship of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS) qualification needed to practice as a surgeon in the United Kingdom (UK), has been opened at the MIT School of Health Sciences (MITSHS) in the city. This is the second MRCS exam centre in the country; general physicians who aspire for the FRCS qualification were so far required to travel either to Kolkata or to the UK to appear for the eligibility test.
A formal memorandum of understanding (MoU) between the MITSHS and the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS), London, to set up of the exam centre was signed on Monday 23rd April, 2012. The RCS is one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions for higher medical education in the UK. Earlier, the practice was to appear for the FRCS exams directly. Now it is mandatory to appear for MRCS exam before appearing for FRCS. The MITSHS, established three years ago, runs a programme for the Member of Royal College of General Practitioners qualification under licence from RCS London. Aspirants from India as well as from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Bhutan and Nepal, Iran and Iraq will benefit from the centre in Pune. Head of RCS Mike Parker and founder head of MIT group of institutions V D Karad were present at the MoU signing ceremony. A 16-member team of experts from the RCS London, who are in India to conduct the exam, was also present, along with MITSHS director Suchitra Nagare, international coordinator Umesh Nagare and India coordinator Vaishali Korde.
