Associate membership

RCPCH Associate members can reside anywhere in the world. You can apply to become an RCPCH Associate member if you hold a primary medical qualification and work mainly in child health.

We offer an optional reduced subscription to our journal, Archives of Disease in Childhood. Associate members have the option to register for training for access to RCPCH ePortfolio (additional cost).

Associate membership of the RCPCH may be of particular interest to SAS doctors, Clinical Fellows, Trust Doctors, and General Practitioners who have not passed MRCPCH clinical and work mainly with children, especially if applying for the Diploma of Child Health.
