Our proposed changes to the MFSRH exam

As part of our work on the new CSRH curriculum, our FSRH Examinations Committee is reviewing our membership examination (MFSRH). The aim is to make this more educationally robust for candidates.

We matched the entire syllabus to all methods of assessment and found that the skills tested by the Evidence Based Commentary (EBC) and Critical Reading Question (CRQ) are adequately tested elsewhere.

We would like to hear your views on our proposed changes below in our short survey.

What changes are we proposing?

Our proposed MFSRH includes a Part 1 with Single Best Answer (SBA) questions; a Part 2 with a written paper containing SBA and Extended Matching Questions (EMQ); and an Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE).

This would mean the removal of the Evidence Based Commentary and Critical Reading Question elements from the MFSRH. We believe that these changes are best practice educationally, better support candidates and will complement the new CSRH Curriculum.

Share your feedback by 31 May

We have created a short survey to gather your thoughts on this. We are particularly interested in your views on two specific changes below.

The survey takes just a few minutes of your time and we would need your feedback by 31 May.

1. Removal of the Evidence Based Commentary (EBC)

2. Removal of the Critical Reading Question (CRQ) – Part 2
