MRCPI Conferring Ceremonies

RCPI-3

Congratulations to our newest Members!

Book now for MRCPI conferring ceremonies on 13 April 2017

Congratulations on your achievement - We know it takes immense dedication and clinical acumen to pass our Membership examinations.

When you are conferred as a Member of the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, it marks a major milestone on the path to becoming a specialist. You are joining a global network of respected physicians whose roots date back to 1654.

You should aim to attend a conferring ceremony in the same year that you pass your clinical exam.

Remember, you are not considered a Member of RCPI and are not entitled to use the post-nominal letters 'MRCPI', until you have been conferred at a ceremony and awarded your diploma. You can also apply to be conferred in Absentia.
