Currently MRCPCH is a UK and international examination in paediatrics comprising of three sections; MRCPCH Part 1, MRCPCH Part 2 and the MRCPCH Clinical Examination.
MRCPCH Part 1 is a written examination consisting of two papers, Basic Paediatrics (1a) and Science of Paediatrics (1b).
MRCPCH Part 2 is also a written examination covering the application of knowledge and decision making.

From May 2013 the MRCPCH Part 2 will be Applied Knowledge. Each paper may be sat in any order. For further information on the changes please click here.
The MRCPCH Clinical is a ten-station practical assessment and can only be sat once all written examinations have been completed. Candidates who successfully complete all parts of the MRCPCH examinations are eligible to become Members of the Royal College.
