Become an Ordinary member

Ordinary membership, which is available for paediatricians in the UK and internationally who have passed MRCPCH Clinical, and which provides the MRCPCH designation, supports your professional development with a range of benefits.

About Ordinary membership

If you are a paediatrician who has passed the MRCPCH Clinical or MRCP(UK) part II examination in paediatrics, you may apply for Ordinary membership.

If you are in a paediatric specialty training role, you will also need to register for training. This has an additional fee, and gives you access to RCPCH ePortfolio and resources to support your career. You can do this at the same time as you apply for membership.

In summary, membership of RCPCH means continuous professional education, excellent standards of paediatric care and a strong emotional bond, which definitely improved the final outcome of my daily work.
