Eligible trainees or OTPs are recommended to the relevant Education or OTP Committee and the appropriate Division, Faculty or Chapter for approval to be admitted into Fellowship.
For trainees, approval by the relevant Committee and Division, Faculty or Chapter may take several weeks following the completion of training requirements.
Joint Training: If you have trained under both an Education Committee of the RACP and a Joint Specialist Advisory Committee (JSAC) of the RACP and the RCPA (e.g. training in Rheumatology and Immunology/Allergy), you are strongly advised to apply for Admission to Fellowship of the RACP only upon full completion of the requirements of the JSAC, in order to avoid a prolonged training program.
To be eligible for admission any supervisor reports or other documentation needs to be submitted and any outstanding training fees paid, prior to being invited to apply for Fellowship.
Once approved, trainees and OTPs will be invited by the College to apply for Fellowship.
