DOHNS Part 2 OSCE to be renamed as MRCS ENT OSCE
28 Jan 2022
Following the discontinuation of the DO-HNS Part 1 examination in September 2021, we would like to inform you that the DO-HNS Part 2 (OSCE) examination is to be renamed the MRCS (ENT) OSCE.This will take effect from February 2022. The format and content of the MRCS (ENT) OSCE will be the same as when the examination was called the DO-HNS Part 2 OSCE.
Regulations for the DO-HNS and MRCS (ENT) have been updated to reflect this change in name and can be found here: https://www.intercollegiatemrcsexams.org.uk/dohns/dohns-regulations-and-formal-documents/.
Candidates who sit and pass the MRCS Part A and the MRCS (ENT) OSCE will be eligible for the award of MRCS (ENT) only. Candidates who sat and passed the DO-HNS Part 1 prior to it being discontinued in 2021 would still be eligible for the award of the DO-HNS Diploma on completion of the MRCS (ENT) OSCE.
