    Full membership is available to doctors who spend the majority of their professional time in an approved urgent care facility. Associate membership is free to all doctors with an interest in urgent care. It does not carry voting rights. RNZCUC sends associate members urgent care updates. Note: Almost all trainees and Fellows choose to become full members. Doctors who for whatever reason do not wish to belong to RNZCUC may elect not to join and still undertake training and recertification. There is no saving in doing so; RNZCUC charges trainees who are associate members or non-members a training programme fee that is equal to the membership fee, and Fellows an equivalent recertification fee.
