The Diploma in Geriatric Medicine (DGM) offers doctors the opportunity to review and consider all aspects of the care of elderly people and to be recognised as having this knowledge. The Diploma in Tropical Medicine and Hygiene (DTM&H) is intended to test the knowledge required of physicians who wish to practice medicine effectively in developing countries. 

Masters programmes

Aside from setting exams, the RCP offers Masters programmes to enable doctors to develop their careers and enhance their skills in certain areas.
