Welcome to the Ceylon College of Physicians new website
The Ceylon College of Physicians came into being on the 25th of July 1967 in the Consultants lounge of the NHSL (then General Hospital Colombo). The inaugural meeting was held on the 26th of September 1967. The transactions of the Ceylon College of Physicians was our first journal (in 1967), later re-launched as the Journal of the Ceylon College of Physicians in 1975. The CCP became the first examining body outside the UK to offer MRCP examination, which it has held since 1971. We now have grown with our own home at Rajagiriya and have more than 600 members. We are leaders in the field of CPD and have a biannual journal and a newsletter for our membership. More

This year, the Sessions were a joint academic activity held in collaboration with the Royal College of Physicians of London.
