The Royal College of Physicians of Glasgow, UK (a charity) promotes the best levels of health and high standards of healthcare for people throughout the world. It was established in 1599. The requirement to maintain membership of the Royal College reflects the need for professional life-long education - continuing professional development - which modern medicine dictates. After reaching the consultant status, advancement from Membership to Fellowship* of the Royal College of Physicians (FRCP Status) might be achieved. Successful candidates must fulfil specific criteria employed by the Royal College Council. Fellowship is the highest level of membership of the Royal College of Physicians and comes with many responsibilities and is a continuing process being part of continuing professional development in accordance with the British standards.
I was elevated to the Fellowship status, FRCP Glasgow (Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians of Glasgow), after I had been a member of the Royal College of Physicians for a number of years. I was admitted as a Physician Fellow on 24/2/2012 having acquired distinction as a Physician and having completed training appropriate to the Regulations. My teaching experience in the UK and Egypt enabled me to become a Royal College Clinical Educator on 23/9/2016. I make this long-term commitment as long as my educational activities take place mainly in Egypt and I am capable of teaching the relevant courses. The fees are for the Royal College only.
If you are an employer, a Government body or similar and require verification of my FRCP status, the Royal College provides letters and attest certificates for a fee as long as I consent to the Royal College providing such verification to you.
