Affiliates and Associates

The RCS is committed to offering a high level of support throughout a surgeon’s career.

The Affiliate and Associate schemes offer the opportunity to join the College and receive a variety of benefits and support targeted to your needs.


You can join as an Affiliate if you are a medical or dental student studying at a UK university or are a UK Foundation, Core surgical or dental trainee who has not yet passed their MRCS or MJDF/MFDS.
