We are 500: send us your birthday message

The RCP is inviting members and medical professionals to join in our 500th anniversary celebrations by showing us who or what inspired you to become a physician, what makes you passionate about your career in medicine, or sending us a birthday message. 

Share your passion

We’re inviting you to share a social media message with us. Simply print off one of the attached PDFs, write an answer to one or all of the questions and take a photo of you holding it up.

Invite your colleagues together for a group photo if you like. We want to involve as many people as possible.

Choose your message

Remember to take a portrait snap from the waist up so you can fit your banner and the top of your head in – as demonstrated here by some of our staff:

Once you've downloaded a card, written your message and taken the picture, post and share it on social media using the #RCP500 tag:

Feel free to tag friends in your photos. A selection of the images will go on our website and some will be displayed at our London headquarters on our birthday, so make sure you get them to us soon.
