There are two classes of membership.

Full membership is available to all doctors who spend the majority of their professional time in an approved urgent uare facility.
Full members are generally doctors who Fellows of the RNZCUC or training to become Fellows.
The full membership fee is the same for trainees, advanced trainees and Fellows.

Associate membership is free to all doctors with an interest in urgent care but has no voting rights. RNZCUC sends associate members urgent care updates.

There is no saving for Fellows or trainees in becoming an associate member. RNZCUC charges trainees who are associate members or non-members a training programme fee that is equal to the membership fee.
Similarly, Fellows who are associate members or non-members and are in RNZCUC's recertification programme are charged a recertification fee.

Almost all trainees and Fellows choose to become become members, but doctors who for whatever reason to not wish to belong to RNZCUC may elect not to join and still undertake training and recertification through RNZCUC.
