The syllabus for the examination fully integrates basic science and clinical knowledge. It has been agreed by, and is common to, the Surgical Royal Colleges of Great Britain and Ireland.
The aim of the syllabus is to set out for candidates a comprehensive description of the breadth and depth of the knowledge, skills and attributes expected of them. The syllabus thus provides a framework around which a programme of preparation and revision can be structured. It also sets out the areas in which candidates will be examined.
