Difference between FRCS Domestic (JCIE) and FRCS International (JSCFE)

What is the full form JCIE and what is JCIE?

The full form of JCIE is Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examination. The intercollegiate FRCS examinations are administered by two committees.

The first one of the two committees is the JCIE (Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examinations) which handles domestic examinations.

What is the full form JSCFE and what is JSCFE?

The full form of JSCFE is Joint Surgical Colleges Fellowship Examination. The intercollegiate FRCS examinations are administered by two committees.

It is the second one of the two committees which handles the international or overseas examinations.

Can we use FRCS international to get a GMC registration?


Yes you can use FRCS international to get a GMC registration. 


Joint Surgical Colleges Fellowship Examination (JSCFE) or FRCS International has been listed as an acceptable post graduate qualification on the GMC website. 


A person qualified with FRCS International (JSCFE) is taken as an evidence that you have the necessary knowledge, skills and experience to apply for full registration with a licence to practise.

What is the difference between FRCS international and domestic FRCS with regard to working in the middle East?

A person who is having a FRCS domestic, that is, one who has cleared Joint Committee on Intercollegiate Examination (JCIE) means that he has finished his whole surgical training in the UK. While a person who is having a FRCS International, that is, one who has cleared Joint Surgical Colleges Fellowship Examination (JSCFE), he has completed his training in any other country like India, Bangladesh, Malaysia or Pakistan etc. So naturally more weightage will be given to the profile of a person who has completely trained in the UK and will obviously get more and better opportunities. A person with FRCS international will be preferred over a person who is just having his domestic specialist medical qualification.
