Re: Call for Clinical, Basic, and Lay examiners - MRCS Part B OSCE examinations - Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland


Dear Colleague,


I hope you’re well.


The Court of Examiners executive committee, which was set up in 2014, was established in order to increase the profile of postgraduate surgical examining at RCSI. The aim of the court is to make such examining activity more relevant and attractive to RCSI’s surgical community in Ireland and overseas.

Examiners play a key role in the progression of our surgical trainees domestically and internationally. The support of our basic, clinical, and lay examiners is integral to our ability to deliver the MRCS exams and ensuring that the surgical quality standard of our surgeons in training is assessed to the highest efficiency.

As our first cohort of MRCS examiners are now progressing to their second and final term as examiners, we are now looking to recruit new basic, clinical and lay examiners to join our surgical examining committee and help deliver our MRCS Part B OSCE diets in Ireland and overseas in Malaysia, Bahrain and the UAE.

Prospective examiners can find more information such as eligibility criteria for each of our examiner vacancies on our Court of Examiners webpage. Applications forms for each of our examiner vacancies can be seen below:

In order to apply, prospective examiners will need to fill out the application form for the vacancy of your choice and send it to

Please let us know if you have any questions at all.


Kind regards,

RCSI Court of Examiners Executive Committee
