Admission to Fellowship
Progression from approval of training requirements to confirmation of Fellowship can take about 6 to 8 weeks.
Approval of training requirements
Eligible trainees and overseas trained physicians (OTPs) who have successfully completed training requirements are recommended by the College to the relevant Education or OTP committee and appropriate Division, Faculty or Chapter for approval to be admitted to Fellowship.
Applying for Fellowship
After approval of training has been confirmed an email invitation from Member Services will be sent to you with instructions on how to apply online for admission to Fellowship.
Confirmation of Fellowship
Shortly after completing the admission to Fellowship application and paying the associated fees, you will receive a confirmation letter from the President via email confirming training and Fellowship.
New Fellows can use their confirmation letter when registering as a physician with APHRA or MCNZ.
Contact the College if a hard copy confirmation letter is required.
New Fellows will receive their testamur (Fellowship certificate) via registered post within a few months of receiving their confirmation of Fellowship letter.
The Fellowship Mark is a trademarked symbol designed exclusively for RACP Fellows to use to symbolise their professional qualifications and membership of the RACP to their patients, peers and the community. Fellowship Marks are available for download through MyRACP.
