Write questions for the theory exams

If you're a member with MRCPCH, why not join a Question Setting Group (QSG), in your region? Our day-long meetings are a great opportunity to support the next generation of paediatricians, develop your skills and network with new colleagues and old friends.
Across UK

At a QSG, you'll work in small groups to produce new questions for the theory exams (Foundation of Practice, Theory & Science and Applied Knowledge in Paediatrics). Your questions will be reviewed by the College and may be used in future exams.

The QSGs are open to both trainee (ST4 - ST8) and consultant paediatricians; you must hold your MRCPCH. We reimburse all reasonable travel expenses, though cannot cover accommodation costs.

Opportunity to work with peers from different hospitals and backgrounds... [we were] able to learn from one another. Very interactive session - leads were highly approachable.
