See the President's message on the 2024 fee increase

Dear members,

The RACP Board is announcing a decision to increase fees by 6 per cent for both Trainees and Fellows for the 2024 year – this is in line with CPI. Fellows have received the subscription increase in renewal notices. Training fees and charges for Trainees for 2024 are now available below. 

In the context of rapidly increasing costs and high inflation in both Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, we know this may not be welcome news. We do consider that it is necessary so that we can meet our rising operating costs. In recent years, we have worked to contain increases in fees. Last year, when other Colleges increased their fees on average by 5 percent, we did not, and over the last decade we have consistently held fee increases below CPI. In addition to rising costs, we are commencing significant transformation projects to improve training and member experiences.

These include IT platforms to support our Training Management Programme, linked to our Australian Medical Council accreditation, and investment in member services technology to deliver the services you expect. The fee increase allows us to sustainably invest in these new platforms. We are also actively reviewing expenditure of the College.

The College has undergone a major re-budgeting process for the 2024 budget to increase efficiency and transparency of costs, which will continue into 2024 so we can deliver member value and conserve resources. We will be doing further work on College expenditure specifically in areas such as travel and other operational costs, but our investment needs are greater than what operational efficiencies alone can deliver.

For any member who may be experiencing financial difficulties, there are options to support you. You can opt to pay some types of fees in instalments - see our College Fees Terms and Conditions for further details or contact us for confidential assistance.

Please read the frequently asked questions below to help answer any queries you may have, and we will continue to update this with any further common questions you're asking.

Your Board welcomes your feedback; email us and your comments will be passed on to Directors.

Dr Jacqueline Small
President, RACP.
