Description:
Membership of the Royal Colleges of Physicians (MRCP(UK)) is a postgraduate medical diploma. The examinations are run by the Federation of the Medical Royal Colleges of the United Kingdom (UK) – the Royal College of Physicians of London, the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow.
