The Royal College of Surgeons of England, one of the most prestigious professional surgical bodies in the world, held the Intercollegiate MRCS examination in Nicosia on 22 October 2015. The examination was held on the Medical School’s premises, with our cooperation and support.   A large number of eminent surgeons, serving as examiners of the Royal College, traveled to Cyprus and were joined by examiners from the Medical School faculty.  After the examination a group of examiners offered a series of specialty surgical lectures to medical students.
