RCP associate membership welcomes you to our community and is here to help you excel from the very start of your career in medicine and to succeed in your first years as a fully qualified doctor. We aim to assist you in making those key decisions that will take you forward to the next stage of your training. After passing the MRCP(UK) exam, you will become eligible for collegiate membership.
We give our members the tools and resources needed to prepare for exams and succeed in physician training. Through our representation, education and recognition, you will feel supported through a crucial stage of your career.
What we do for you
Associate membership offers a wide range of benefits specific to your education and career stage. These benefits include:
