RCPI renews contract with TestReach to deliver written examinations online

The Royal College of Physicians of Ireland has signed a new three-year contract with TestReach to deliver RCPIs written examinations through remote invigilation.

The contract, signed by Audrey Houlihan, RCPI CEO and Louella Morton, TestReach Co-CEO on 7 June 2024 at No 6 Kildare Street, further strengthens the innovative collaboration between our organisations.

RCPI first partnered with TestReach in March 2020 in response to the global COVID-19 pandemic, becoming the first postgraduate medical training body to move online to limit disruption to doctors seeking to sit their examinations during this challenging time.

“Our partnership with TestReach cements our commitment to innovation and agility to meet the growing and evolving needs of our examination candidates,” Ms Houlihan said.

“Progress is delivered through continual improvement, and we are pleased to have a partner in TestReach who shares our passion and conviction to use leading technology to support and empower doctors globally to progress their careers.”

Louella Morton said that TestReach is delighted to renew the long-standing partnership with the College.

“Working together, we have driven innovative technological change in the delivery and management of the RCPI’s complex and high-stakes medical examinations. Our solution reinforces RCPI’s global strategy to deliver exams with flexibility, fairness and consistency of experience for all their candidates. We are excited to continue with this collaboration and look forward to further innovation in working with RCPI, anticipating and meeting the needs of medical candidates into the future,” Ms Morton said.

“We look forward to working with TestReach as they continue to evolve the platform and address emerging needs of medical examination candidates,” Ms Houlihan said.
