Become a Junior Member

Junior membership provides you with the best start to your paediatric career with access to specialist support and a wide range of learning resources.

About and requirements

Junior membership is for UK doctors in specialty paediatric training before completing the MRCPCH exams.

Registration for training gives you access to our online tool RCPCH ePortfolio, which records your progression through specialty training. We ensure that your training is under regular review, monitor the outcomes of your Annual Review of Competence Progression (ARCP) and support you when required.

  • If you are a paediatric trainee in a GMC-approved run-through training post and are preparing for the MRCPCH examinations, you are required to apply for junior membership and register for training.
  • If you are a paediatric trainee in an FTSTA (fixed term specialty training appointment) or a LAT (locum appointed for training) post, you are encouraged to apply for membership and register for training. RCPCH ePortfolio is useful to record your progression, especially if you are considering applying to specialty training in the future.

You can apply for membership and register for training through a single online form.
