2012;10:60. In order to interpret correlations, particularly when examinations differ in their reliability, it is helpful to ‘disattenuate’ them for differences in reliability. 2011;61:712–3. The exams are challenging and while hard work is We identified 2,284 candidates who had taken one or more parts of both assessments, MRCP(UK) typically being taken 3.7 years before MRCGP. Predicting adult occupational environment from gender and childhood personality traits.

Disattenuated correlations give a more accurate estimate of the shared variance between two tests (r This stands for magnetic resonance cholangio pancreatography (col-an-jee-oh pan-kree-at-og-raf-ee). RW is Assessment Advisor to the MRCGP; MLD as MRCGP Clinical Lead for Research has been and continues to be involved in the development and QA of the MRCGP CSA; JD was Medical Director of the MRCP(UK); and ICM is the Educational Advisor to the MRCP(UK). The merged file contained information on 2,284 candidates who had taken one or more parts of both MRCGP and MRCP(UK). Medical Student Finals. Woods SA, Hampson SE. ‘b’ coefficients are simple regression coefficients, a value of ‘b’ indicating that for an increase of one unit on the scale of the (independent) predictor variable there is a change of b units on the outcome (dependent) variable. MRCP vs. ERCP Steve Harrell, MD, MSPHSteve Harrell, MD, MSPH Advanced Therapeutic EndoscopyAdvanced Therapeutic Endoscopy University of Louisville December 6, 2007December 6, 2007. The marking scheme for PACES changed in 2009 [21], although almost all of the present candidates had in fact taken it before then. That they are in fact substantially linked supports the idea that both are assessing cognate areas of relevance to medicine. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is widely used as a noninvasive, accurate test for suspected choledocholithiasis. Kane MT. Validating the interpretations and uses of test scores. Hello, I myself plan on applying for GP training. The second, more specific, aim of this paper is to examine the performance of those candidates of different ethnicities who, unusually amongst UK doctors, sat the entirely separate assessments of two major examining bodies. The six comparisons of Old/New CSA × AKT/CSA × Part1/Part2/PACES, merging White and BME were significant in only two cases (see bottom of Table 4: p = .013 and p = .038). The candidates taking both MRCGP and MRCP(UK) are clearly not a random or typical subset of the more usual candidates for MRCGP and MRCP(UK), who will normally take just one assessment but not the other. Having information about candidates’ performance on two separate assessments allows one way of doing this. A similar effect has been reported in several cohort studies, ethnic minorities underperforming at successive stages, even after taking previous performance into account by structural equation modelling. With the specific image acquisition sequences used, f… The CSA is taken at the end of specialist training for General Practice (GP) and is seen as a critical ‘exit examination’. BMC Medical Education BMC Med Educ 15, 1 (2015). Forward-entry regression was used, with lower order terms being entered before higher-order terms. ‘b’ coefficients are on the units of the outcome variable, and therefore are not easily compared across different assessments, whereas beta coefficients are dimension-less (like correlation coefficients) and hence can be more readily compared across different assessments. McManus IC, Mooney-Somers J, Dacre JE, Vale JA. The MRCP-first group required a second procedure more often and exhibited more days of hospitalization than did the ERCP-first group. The ‘beta’ coefficients are standardised ‘b’ coefficients, and show for a one standard deviation increase in the predictor variable the number of standard deviations by which the outcome variable will change. Part of We are grateful to Liliana Chis for her assistance in this study, to Dr Sue Rendel (previously RCGP Chief Examiner) for her permission to make use of RCGP examination data, and to Dr Andrew Elder for his helpful comments on a draft of the manuscript. All candidates taking MRCGP are on the UK medical register (LRMP; List of Registered Medical Practitioners), and hence have a GMC number. MRCP and FRCP? Data linkage comparison of PLAB and UK graduates' performance on MRCP(UK) and MRCGP examinations: equivalent IMG career progress requires higher PLAB pass-marks. I am glad to inform you that I have cleared MRCP Part 1 at my 1st attempt. You can read… Table 3 also shows that there is an ethnicity effect in both MRCGP and MRCP(UK) at each stage of each examination, BME candidates performing less well even after taking performance at previous stages into account. Definition: ERCP stands for Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangio-Pancreatography whereas MRCP stands for Magnetic Resonance Cholangio-Pancreatography.. MRCGP is an integrated assessment system, success in which confirms that a doctor has satisfactorily completed specialty training for general practice, and is competent to enter independent practice in the United Kingdom without further supervision. Whether or not the MRCGP examination components actually correlate with the MRCP(UK) assessments is clearly of particular interest to the RCGP. Considering just the main correlations, shown in bold, they are highly significant (all p < .001) between the two parts of MRCGP and the three parts of MRCP(UK). You may have an MRI scan of your abdomen at the same time as the MRCP. Taken overall, Figure 1 shows that PACES performance is a good predictor of CSA performance, and that the new CSA is being predicted better than was the old CSA, implying an increase in the validity of the new CSA over the old. Wakeford R. Annual Report (August 2011 - July 2012) on the Results of the AKT and CSA Assessments. High-stakes, postgraduate medical assessments should be valid. Downing SM. So, what's the difference between being a 'Member' of a Royal College and being a 'Fellow' of a Royal College, e.g. London: Royal College of General Practitioners; 2013. http://www.rcgp.org.uk/training-exams/mrcgp-exams-overview/mrcgp-annual-reports/~/media/Files/GP-training-and-exams/Annual-reports/MRCGP%20Statistics%202011-12%20final%20121212.ashx. 2011;342:d901. In this paper one of our aims is to concentrate on just one of those strands, one which has hardly been looked at for UK postgraduate assessments, which is the extent to which performance on one assessment correlates with subsequent performance on another. PubMed Google Scholar. statement and An organization representing ethnic minority doctors (BAPIO: the British Association of Physicians of Indian Origin) had asked the Court to consider its claim that the College was unlawfully discriminating against Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) doctors in the CSA, both directly and indirectly. However the latter correlation is still .314 and highly significant, and therefore the association may reflect some other shared mechanism, perhaps of motivation, approaches to study, or prior scientific and clinical knowledge, all of which have been argued to contribute to the ‘academic backbone’ [5] which underpins school-level, undergraduate and postgraduate performance, performance at each stage being correlated with better prior performance. Cookies policy. © 2021 BioMed Central Ltd unless otherwise stated. 2010;95:1057. Previously, although marked on each of the (then, twelve) cases on three criteria of data-gathering, clinical management and interpersonal skills, candidates were separately adjudged ‘pass’ or ‘fail’ on each station, and to pass the examination they needed to achieve a specific number of ‘passes’ (normally, eight out of twelve). Data for MRCGP AKT and CSA were available from October 2007 until May 2011; since the two components are typically taken a year apart, there were some candidates for whom data was available only for one component. The original idea for this study came jointly from RW and ICM. Table 3 summarises a series of multiple regression analyses, assessing the effect of ethnicity (BME) after taking earlier performance into account. Springer Nature. d Similarly the sub-scores on AKT also show an ethnicity effect, and with the exception of AKT evidence Interpretation, the AKT sub-scores shown ethnicity effects even after taking other sub-scores into account. The relationship between ethnicity and academic performance in UK-trained doctors and medical students: a systematic review and meta-analysis. It does not have the small but definite morbidity and mortality associated with ERCP. Correspondence to x r Overall, the old CSA and the new CSA seem to be performing in a broadly equivalent way. 2014;89:1–6. Had either of the assessments had a zero reliability (in effect producing random numbers), or been reliable but assessing arbitrary material of no relevance to medicine, then performance of the two assessments would have been uncorrelated. Understanding ethnic differences can be helped by comparing the performance of doctors who take both MRCGP and MRCP(UK). Correlations disaggregated by ethnicity were complex, MRCGP AKT showing similar correlations with Part1/Part2/PACES in White and BME candidates, but CSA showing stronger correlations with Part1/Part2/PACES in BME candidates than in White candidates. Intercepts for BME and CSA type were both significant (p < .001), but there was no significant effect on intercept of BME × CSA type. The Course Director is Dr Zubair Ahmad, a GP Trainer from North West Deanery of England. 2013;63:e718–25. Because of a varying pass mark on a daily (CSA) or diet (AKT) basis, all candidates’ scores are scaled to a standard pass-mark of zero for reporting purposes. As much as I bitch and moan about it, I love the smile on peoples' faces when we fix them. MRCGP AKT was taken an average of 3.7 years (SD 1.33 years) after MRCP(UK) Part 1, with only 1.0% of candidates taking AKT before Part 1. Reasons are pretty clear ,first is having little time on the board and second (most obvious ) is limited financial sources! d The MRCGP qualification is a marker of quality and is regarded as an end-point assessment for general practice for those completing GP training. The MRCP(UK) management board has reviewed the ruling for the MRCP part 2 written and part 2 clinical (PACES) examinations. Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge, Cambridge, CB1 2EW, UK, Royal College of General Practitioners, 30 Euston Square, London, NW1 2ED, UK, UCL Medical School, University College London, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT, UK, Katarzyna Ludka-Stempien, Jane Dacre & I C McManus, Research Department of Clinical, Educational and Health Psychology, University College London, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT, UK, You can also search for this author in Assessments of all sorts, particularly high-stakes assessments, need to be valid. Detailed analyses by candidate ethnicity show that although White candidates out-perform BME candidates, the differences are largely mirrored across the two examinations. the pass mark). That is certainly the case for post-graduate medical examinations, where passing an examination provides entry into a specialist career, and failure means the abandonment of that career route. How we help you … Part 1 and Part 2 were originally standard-set using a modified Angoff technique combined with a Hofstee method, but from the diets of 2008/3 and 2010/1 respectively until the present have been set using statistical equating based on Item-Response Theory (IRT), with a one-parameter IRT (Rasch) model [20]. If the bile will be used later, it will travel from the liver into the gallbladder through one of the bile ductstubes that transport bile away from the liver to where it is used to aid digestion. J App Psych. Understanding the mechanism is not straightforward, but having both MRCP(UK) and MRCGP data allows an additional handle on the problem, and we know of no other studies that examine performance in terms of this variable which look at the relationship between two examinations. 2013;13:103. doi:10.1186/1472-6920-13-103. The CSA exam changed somewhat in autumn 2010, with the approval of the GMC. The presentation of marks changed at the same time, and all marks are presented in the current marking scheme which was equated to a mean of 500 and a standard deviation of 100 for the reference cohort used for equating, with earlier marks being put onto the new scheme. Washington, DC: American Educational Research Association; 1999. Having said that, they have not performed as well as candidates taking all three parts of MRCP(UK), and the move to MRCGP may have reflected a realisation that they were not likely to succeed as well at hospital medicine, or that their interests were more outside of hospital medicine. The analyses described below for all candidates have been repeated for UK graduates alone and almost identical results have been found, and therefore results regarding ethnicity will be reported here for the full candidate group. Column (b) shows the performance of all candidates in the MRCGP database; Column (c) shows the performance of all candidates in the MRCP(UK) database: Column (d) shows the mean scores of those doctors who had taken at least one part of both MRCGP and MRCP(UK): it can be seen that performance was above average for AKT, but below average for CSA, and the three parts of MRCP(UK), Column (e) shows the performance of all doctors in the MRCP(UK) database who had taken all three parts of the examination (and hence had passed Parts 1 and 2), Column (f) shows the performance of all doctors who had taken MRCGP and all three parts of MRCP(UK): while they performed better at AKT and a little worse at CSA, they performed better overall than typical candidates at MRCP(UK), but somewhat less well than the candidates in Column (e). Bile is a digestive juice that is made in the liver and can be used immediately or stored for later use. Completed MRCP means you have attained the qualification necessary to become a registrar in the UK, provided you have enough clinical experience (but taking up a registrar level job as your very first job is not recommended).   Looking in more detail, it is clear that AKT correlates most highly with MRCP(UK) Part 1 (.673), a little less with Part 2 (.600), and least of all with PACES (.471), although the latter correlation is still substantial and highly significant. , the disattenuated correlation which takes account of measurement error using the standard formula r This would not have been possible but for the exhaustive question bank and guidance by Pastest. Next exam date: May 2021 £84.99 Buy Now. Alternatively, the much larger group of doctors who took MRCP(UK) Part 1, but then did not go on to take the other parts of MRCP(UK) may have been discouraged from a career in hospital medicine by their performance on Part 1, and may have therefore turned to general practice. Initial Thoughts McManus IC, Elder AT, Dacre J. An important general conclusion of this cross-comparison study is that there are high correlations between attainment at MRCGP and MRCP(UK), providing support for the validity of each assessment, with correlations being particularly strong between similar sub-components (MCQ to MCQ, OSCE to OSCE). 1,401 (61.3%) of the 2,284 candidates were graduates of UK medical schools, of whom 600 (42.8%) were BME, whereas of the 883 non-UK graduates, 830 (94.0%) were BME. MRCGP: Member of the Royal College of General Practitioners. McManus IC, Wakeford RE. California Privacy Statement, Association between licensure examination scores and practice in primary care.

BMC Med. Candidates who do better at one exam therefore do better at the other, even though MRCGP is typically taken more than three years later than MRCP(UK). 2010;10:40 (www.biomedccentral.com/1472-6920/10/40). Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) performance of doctors who passed Professional and Linguistic Assessments Board (PLAB) tests compared with UK medical graduates: national data linkage study. I already decided the MRCP will open more doors - so I'll be sitting part 1 in January. MJA. Hays RB. BMC Med. The explanation for such effects is not clear, but the fact that the effects occur across two independent examinations, in both MCQ and clinical examinations, and after taking previous performance into account, suggests that the effects are unlikely to be due to particular features of any one assessment, component of an assessment or style of assessment. McManus IC, Thompson M, Mollon J. Candidates who take both assessments have typically undertaken the MRCP(UK) during the years immediately after qualification, and , and the MRCGP AKT in the second year of their three-year GP training programme and the CSA in their final year. MRCP is a purely diagnostic test with no therapeutic value. Acad Med. Med Educ. Because MRCGP is usually taken after MRCP(UK), the correlation may reflect material that has been learned for MRCP(UK) subsequently being useful for the MRCGP examination. 2013;347:f5662. Part 1 consists of multiple-choice questions (MCQ). As the last of the generalists I think that MRCP(UK) is a much more useful qualification to have even if you become a GP.In my experience MRCGP gives the 'touchy-feely' bit but lacks the true knowledge and depth one needs to be a good generalist.Im a GP with MRCP(UK);MRCGP strikes me as a mickey mouse diploma in comparison.Hence Ive not bothered with it. Both MRCGP and MRCP(UK) have knowledge assessments (MRCGP AKT (Applied Knowledge Test), and MRCP(UK) Part 1 and Part 2, all being conventional multiple choice assessments), and each also has a clinical assessment (PACES (Practical Assessment of Clinical Examination Skills) for MRCP(UK) and CSA (Clinical Skills Assessment) for MRCGP, both being variants of an OSCE assessment. MRCP Part 2 Written. McManus IC, Chis L, Fox R, Waller D, Tang P. Implementing statistical equating for MRCP(UK) Parts 1 and 2. Analyses not reported here suggest that the order of taking MRCGP and MRCP(UK) did not correlate with AKT, but those who took MRCP(UK) first were somewhat more likely to pass CSA [22]. 10th April 2014. MRCP. However, all measurements, be they of examinations or other behavioural measures, have error and hence are unreliable to a greater or lesser extent. I thought the same too. It is also the case that IMGs underperform in other countries than the UK, including Australia [16,17]. Having an external measure which is correlated with performance at MRCGP provides a tool for analysing issues which might otherwise be hard or perhaps impossible to assess. You do not need MRCP 1 for GP training, as MRCP 1 is for a completely different route. Norcini JJ, Boulet JR, Opalek A, Dauphinee WD. An MRI uses magnetic fields and radio waves to take pictures of the inside of your body. Dewhurst NG, McManus IC, Mollon J, Dacre JE, Vale JA: Performance in the MRCP(UK) Examination 2003–4: Analysis of pass rates of UK graduates in the Clinical Examination in relation to self-reported ethnicity and gender. The multiple regressions show that MRCP(UK) Part 1, the examination almost always taken first, shows a strong effect of ethnicity. In 2009, candidates who have passed the part 1 exam are able to apply for MRCP part 2 written or PACES simultaneously or in no particular order. Google Scholar. The correlation is however compatible with validity, and the argument for validity would be compromised if such a correlation not present. Came across your blog accidentally - hope your MRCP Part 1 went well. I hate being made to choose between having a life aand being the kinda doctor I want to be. AKT showed similar correlations with Part1/Part2/PACES in White and BME candidates (p = .502, .849 and .161). MRCGP: The New CSA Standard-setting System (from Sept. 2010 onwards). = r Correlations between MRCGP and MRCP(UK) were high, disattenuated correlations for MRCGP AKT with MRCP(UK) Parts 1 and 2 being 0.748 and 0.698, and for CSA and PACES being 0.636. Together those, and other such studies and arguments, suggest that postgraduate examinations in general are probably valid predictors of behaviour in actual clinical practice. Elder A, McAlpine L, Bateman N, Dacre J, Kopelman P, McManus IC. Candidates’ ethnicity is of course strongly confounded with primary medical qualification (PMQ), a majority of IMGs coming from ethnic minorities. Membership of the Royal College of General Practitioners (MRCGP) is a postgraduate medical qualification in the United Kingdom (UK) run by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP). The MRCP(UK) database had information on 53,603 candidates who had taken one or more of Part 1, Part 2 and PACES, with GMC numbers available for 31,909 candidates. ‘b’ coefficients are useful for comparing across groups, particularly when the standard deviation of groups may vary. Standard-setting was by means of an Angoff process, with statistical equating across diets. A comparison of the performance of candidates who have taken both MRCGP and MRCP(UK) assessments helps in understanding a number of issues concerning the validity of both of the examinations, as well as the impact of other factors such as ethnicity and the change in the CSA assessment. 2003;37:830–7. In medicine, the scarcity of such data reflects the fact that there is no national UK qualifying examination taken by all graduates, and that relatively few doctors who are training in one specialty will subsequently take exams in another specialty. The results can be summarised succinctly as knowledge tests correlating better with knowledge tests and clinical tests with clinical tests. Cite this article.

MRCP vs PLAB. For practical reasons it is rare for specialist examinations in different specialties to be taken by the same candidates. During 2013, this matter had become more controversial in the case of the MRCGP, in part due to increasing public agitation by BAPIO, and as a result the GMC instigated a review, a report on which was published by that body in September 2013 [12], along with a separate paper in the BMJ with somewhat different conclusions [13]. PACES was the most significant predictor of CSA performance (n = 741, beta = .465). 1999;33:612–5. The MRCGP is the exam of the Royal college of GPs which is far broader than the MRCP but it may well be that you will be required to do a summative assessment at the end of your GP training which will also be a broad assessment across many fields of medicine including psychiatry, gynaecology general surgery and paediatrics to name just a few as well as “social medicine” as it applies in the U.K. Current ACR guidelines recommend contrast-enhanced MRCP, but in hospitalized patients the full protocol may increase costs, scan time, and patient discomfort with questionable benefits. Clin Med. The analyses of Table 4 show that, for the knowledge examinations, the correlation of MRCGP AKT and MRCP(UK) Parts 1 and 2 are almost entirely identical for white and BME candidates. Esmail A, Roberts C. Academic performance of ethnic minority candidates and discrimination in the MRCGP examinations between 2010 and 2012: analysis of data. Old and new CSA were compared for the twelve combinations of White/BME × Old/NewCSA × AKT/CSA × Part1/Part2/PACES, of which only one was significant with p = .008. The performance of MRCP (UK) candidates who subsequently take MRCGP allows validation of each assessment. d The current analyses have shown that additional value can be added to analyses of postgraduate examination performance by combining data from several colleges or examination boards, to contrast the performance of those taking both assessments. Infectious disease and immunology is in fact a rather female/family friendly specialty. ), where r The relationship between CSA and PACES is not the same, however, in the various groups. As a GP registrar, the MRCGP Clinical Skills Assessment (CSA) exam is currently at the forefront of my mind. Magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography (MRCP) is a special type of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) exam that produces detailed images of the hepatobiliary and pancreatic systems, including the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts, pancreas and pancreatic duct.
