The College's Faculty of Dental Surgery is pleased to announce it is expanding its portfolio, adding Leeds as a new location for the MFDS Part 2 Exam.

The Diploma of Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (MFDS) of The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is a long established quality assured assessment. It is an internationally recognised dental qualification which demonstrates completion of foundation/basic postgraduate dental training. It enables dental graduates to demonstrate the acquisition of knowledge, understanding and clinical competence that will have been obtained during Dental Foundation Training. It marks a level of achievement above and beyond the primary dental qualification and clearly exhibits an early commitment to professional development.

The MFDS Exam is made up of two parts, Part 1 and Part 2. The MFDS exams run by the College take place in various diets across the UK and internationally, with the MFDS Part 2 portfolio expanding in the UK with locations now in Edinburgh, London, Sheffield and Leeds.

RCSEd Head of Examinations Ms Elizabeth McKinney-Bennett commented:

“The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is delighted to be bringing the MFDS Part 2 OSCE to Leeds. This success represents a key part of our strategy to broaden our portfolio of examinations and locations to suit the needs of our members and future members in the UK and overseas. The MFDS is an outstanding exam which offers our members unrivalled professional opportunities globally, so we are really pleased that we have been able to meet the great demand for the exam in another North of England centre."
