The RCPE is an independent standard-setting body and professional membership organisation. Our aim is to improve and maintain the quality of patient care.

We help qualified doctors to pursue their careers in specialist (internal) medicine through medical examinations, education and training. We also provide resources and information to support and facilitate professional development for physicians throughout their careers.

The RCPE helps to develop standards of medical care and training and to influence health policy. We ensure that the views and practical clinical experiences of our membership are taken into account by health policymakers throughout the UK.

Venue Hire:
The RCPE is a unique historic venue in Edinburgh's New Town. It offers a wide range of flexible spaces for all kinds of events and conferences, meetings, dinners and receptions, and weddings. The Victorian and Georgian rooms are filled with stunning original architectural features. The conference centre and meeting rooms provide all the technical and audio-visual facilities you would expect from a contemporary event space.
