Your RCPCH online account

Your account is your gateway to online member services. These include resources such as the member dashboard and Compass, the online classroom.

Log in to view and update your details such as contact information and interests. You can pay your subscriptions, register and apply for examinations, and book events.

Subscriptions and how to pay

Your subscription rate depends on your membership type and, for some categories, where you live - find out more about subscriptions.

To pay by Direct Debit, credit or debit card, log in and go to your account.

Concessions may be available for some members, for example, due to financial hardship, maternity leave or working less than full time - find out more about concessions and apply.

Your membership certificate and ceremony

New ordinary members and fellows of the College are invited to commemorate their achievement at an FRCPCH/MRCPCH admissions ceremony and receive their certificate. The ceremony takes place three times a year in locations across the UK.

If you do not attend the ceremony, we will send your certificate by post.

Members who have lost their original certificate after being issued can purchase a replacement for £20 by contacting the Member Services team directly on 020 7092 6060 with credit or debit card details or emailing

Resigning as a member

If you are considering resigning your membership, please contact our Member Services Team. You may be eligible for a concession or alternative subscription rate. Members who are permanently retired may wish to continue as a senior member or fellow.

If you choose to resign, you will lose any right you may have had to use the designations MRCPCH or FRCPCH.
