Full details are available in the training programme selection policy.

You can apply to join the College training programme at any time. We normally acknowledge applications promptly.  If you have not heard back within 3 working days, please email info@rnzcuc.org.nz.

Please note that:

  • The processing of applications received between mid-June and mid July will be delayed due to staff leave.
  • Applications received after the start of November may be delayed due to UCPEX and end-of-year reporting.  We recommend applying BEFORE November if you wish to start in January the following year.

After your application is received, the College confirms that you are eligible, then identifies credits for prior learning and experience based on the information you have provided.  Emergency medicine specialists are often eligible to follow the accelerated pathway to fellowship.

The applicant develops a plan for the completion of remaining requirements.  The plan is used to gauge progress through the programme.

The applicant is invited to an interview as part of the selection process.

If successful, the applicant is offered a place on the training programme and to gain Fellowship by meeting the Fellowship criteria.  The applicant then accepts their place on the training programme, nominating their preferred start date.

The College does not charge a fee for the processing of the application form.
