In 1996, The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh became the first College to set up a Faculty in which doctors, nurses and paramedics could take the same exams and become equal members. The Faculty runs a number of courses and seminars each year to bring together all participants in pre-hospital care for education, research and professional development, and also runs examinations in Immediate Medical Care.

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh is one of the oldest surgical corporations in the world.  Its story begins in the late 1400s when the roles of surgeons and barbers, both requiring sharp instruments to practise their trade, were indistinctly defined as regards such tasks as bloodletting, lancing, shaving, bandaging and treating wounds in battle. From its formal foundation in 1505, the Incorporation of Surgeons and Barbers, now The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, has dedicated itself to promoting the highest standards in surgical education, training and clinical practice.
