MRCPath Part 1

Notes for Assessors, Sponsors and Candidates

Membership of the College may be granted to persons, whether medically qualified or not, who submit published works of sufficient distinction on pathology and related subjects. This route to membership is not intended for pathologists working in diagnostic departments of the major specialties. It is not possible to specify strict criteria for recommending the award of Membership by this route.

Publications should indicate that the candidate has made significant and continuing contributions to pathology within the major discipline nominated and should be grouped into areas of interest. It will normally be expected that the candidate will be able to demonstrate a developing and sustained contribution to at least one clearly defined theme. A collection of unrelated papers would not normally be considered acceptable. The assessors take account of the age of the candidate, which should not normally be less than 35 years, and the length of training and experience in pathology (normally not less than 5 years for medical candidates and 8 years for non-medical candidates), the quality of the work, and the extent of the candidate's responsibility in joint publications. The required standard is unlikely to be reached without the submission of at least 30 peer-reviewed publications, which may include reviews that make substantial high-quality contributions to research and practice within the discipline nominated by the applicant. Case reports, notes on methodology, abstracts and proceedings of meetings should not be submitted. Weighting should be given to publications in international specialist journals appropriate to the discipline. The College is also prepared to consider applications based on publications whose availability is limited by industrial confidentiality.

Candidates wishing to submit their publications in order to obtain membership must be supported by a sponsor who should normally be a Member or Fellow of the College. Candidates are strongly advised to obtain advice on the suitability of their publications from their sponsor; they should not approach the College directly for this purpose. Some candidates apply for exemption from the College's examinations on the basis of publications that are clearly below the standard for serious consideration. Potential sponsors of these candidates can prevent the raising of false hopes and the loss of entrance fees by advising candidates that their chances of success are very small. Potential sponsors who have doubts about the quality of an application are encouraged to seek the advice of the Registrar.
