In 1505, the incorporation of the Barber-Surgeons of Edinburgh came into being with the granting of its Seal of Cause by the Town Council of Edinburgh (See "History of the College"). Since then, the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh has been dedicated to the maintenance and promotion of the highest standards of surgical practice, through its keen interest in education, training and rigorous examination and through its liaison with external medical bodies.
The College deals with the following qualifications:
Faculty of Dental Surgery
The Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is a long established assessment which was revised and updated in 2007, in order to allow dental surgeons to demonstrate the acquisition of knowledge, understand and clinical competence during the first two years of their Foundation Training.
It marks a level of achievement above and beyond the primary dental qualification and demonstrates an early commitment to professional development.
For those aspiring to enter specialist training, it will also provide a significant contribution to the portfolio of evidence which would be required to demonstrate suitable eligibility.

Following an extensive review of the examinations in Ophthalmology conducted by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, major changes have been made and the College is now offering a three part Fellowship Examination in Ophthalmology.
All candidates should be aware that the new-format FRCSEd (Ophth) Examination has been designed for use as a conjoint examination with partner organisations overseas. Although the examination is not recognised by PMETB as an assessment that would contribute towards the award of the Certificate of Completion of Training (CCT), UK trainees may apply for this examination if they wish to do so.
For further information please see the College website or email email@example.com
