The role of being a College Examiner is a privilege that carries with it the responsibility of maintaining the highest standards, as expected by patients, candidates and Members and Fellows.

The College welcomes applications from all members of the College who meet the eligibility criteria. There are five grades of examiner:

  • Consultant Grade Examiner (UK)
  • Consultant Grade Examiner (Overseas Centres)
  • SAS Grade Examiner
  • Question Writer
  • QIP examiner

Full details of the roles and responsibilities of each grade of examiner, the person specifications and application form are available in the Examiner Regulations pack.

Upcoming Examiner workshops 

All new examiners are required to attend a training workshop prior to examining, and current examiners who have not attended a workshop since August 2016 also need to be retrained to ensure they are up to date with the current examination structure.
