Universally recognised credentials are more important than ever in today's global healthcare market. The right qualifications can cross international boundaries and create new opportunities for aspiring specialist physicians.
Launched in 2008, Specialty Certificate Examinations (SCEs) from the Federation of Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom are considered the «gold standard» postgraduate qualification for physicians looking to progress in their specialty.
They provide the opportunity to measure your knowledge against an internationally recognised yardstick, which represents the breadth and depth of knowledge required of a newly qualified specialist in your chosen discipline. Having attained this distinguished qualification, you will find it valuable currency when applying for new roles, either at home or abroad.

SCEs are intended to drive your career forward by showcasing your knowledge. This highly regarded postgraduate qualification provides potential employers in healthcare centres across the globe with assurance of your specialty knowledge, expertise and commitment to clinical excellence, opening up new opportunities and helping you to accomplish your professional goals and ambitions.
