The College continues to offer Membership by Examination (MRCEM) for candidates who have passed all of the following examinations:

  • FRCEM Primary (or MRCEM Part A between 1 August 2012 and 1 August 2016)
  • FRCEM Intermediate SAQ (or MRCEM Part B between 1 August 2012 and 1 August 2016)
  • MRCEM OSCE (previously called Part C. Passed after 1 August 2012)

The MRCEM OSCE is designed to test both the theoretical knowledge and clinical skills of emergency medicine doctors. The OSCE stations test a wide variety of skills including history taking, physical examination, communication skills and the ability to perform practical procedures.

The MRCEM OSCE usually consists of a circuit of 18 stations, each of which is 7 minutes long. There are usually two ‘double stations’, which are 14 minutes longs and involve ALS, APLS or ATLS style scenarios.
