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 the 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. Those who do not pay the membership fee by 31 July may have their accreditation or recertification services revoked.
We encounter doctors who, after several months of being reminded of the overdue invoice, decide not to continue their membership. We remind them that the invoice was due 1 April. Anyone informing the College that they wish to leave after 31 July will be invoiced on a pro-rata basis for membership services. For example, anyone informing the College in the month of July will be invoiced for three months membership.
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 College Administrator (email@example.com).
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 ($200 GST excl) for this access, and those interested should email the College Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
