Full membership

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, updated annually at the AGM in March, is currently $1150 (GST excl). Membership invoices are issued in early April and are due for payment within one month. Those who do not pay the membership fee by 30 June will be deemed to have ceased College membership, and accreditation or recertification services are revoked. Membership fees are pro-rated for those joining (or rejoining) the College part-way through the year.

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.  If you inform us around membership renewal time that you plan to put your membership on hold (for example, informing us in April that you intend to pause recertification at the start of July), we will issue a pro-rated invoice for the months that you are active (eg for the previous example, 3 months covering April, May, June).

Note: Anyone who has not settled their membership invoice by 31 July, who subsequently informs the College that they wish to cancel or put their recertification/training on hold for more than 6 months will receive a pro-rated credit note, meaning the balance is still due.

Registrars should also read the page on pausing training, and Fellows the page on pausing recertification.


Access to educational resources

The College allows health professionals with an interest in urgent care to access educational resources developed or funded by the College.  The educational subscription holder will also receive discounts for events organised by RNZCUC such as the Bootcamp and have the ability to join RNZCUC training or CPD webinars.  Please complete the application form (link to be added shortly) so that we can arrange access.  Please email the College administrator (admin@rnzcuc.org.nz) if you have questions.
