Full membership is available to all doctors who spend the majority of their professional time working in urgent care. Full members are generally doctors who are training to become, or who are, Fellows of RNZCUC. The full membership fee is the same for registrars, senior registrars, and Fellows (clinical and non-clinical). Full members are able to stand for the Executive Committee and have voting rights at AGM and SGM.
The membership fee is currently $1070 (GST excl) and is due 1 April each year. Membership invoices are issued around late March/early April and are due for payment within one month. Those who do not pay the membership fee by 30 June may have their accreditation or recertification services revoked.
Registrar membership fee remains $1070 (GST excl) no matter when you join in the year, and the membership amount covers you for the full year from your date of starting the training programme.
Fellows who rejoin the College part way through the year are invoiced a pro-rated amount (we calculate pro-rated amounts on a quarterly basis).
Cancelling or putting membership on hold
We will issue a pro-rated credit note when membership is put on hold for more than 6 months, or when you wish to cancel your membership completely. We calculate pro-rated amounts on a quarterly basis.
Note: Anyone who has not settled their membership invoice by 31 July, who subsequently informs the College that they wish to put their recertification/training on hold for more than 6 months will receive a pro-rated credit note, meaning the balance is still due.
Associate membership is free to all doctors with an interest in urgent care. Associate members have no voting rights. Those interested in associate membership should email the General Manager (email@example.com) with information to allow the membership subcommittee to approve the application for associate membership.
Access to the online urgent care course material
The College allows health professionals with an interest in urgent care access to the online Urgent Care Course (UCC) material without being a full or associate member. The UCC is hosted by the Goodfellow Unit of the University of Auckland. There is an annual fee for this access, and those interested should email the College Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
