First 4 membership package
New membership package allows you to save up to £512
From July 2020, The Royal College of Surgeons of England will be offering a unique new membership package for UK trainees in their first four years post-MRCS, in response to your concerns about the financial burden of training and the support you need from us.
First 4 your pocket: the discount
Those members who complete their MRCS part B with us will benefit from a reduced membership rate to reflect the costs of training in the early years post-MRCS. The fees will be as follows and can be paid by monthly Direct Debit:
|Year post-MRCS||Discount||Discounted fee||Saving|
RCS England affiliate members save an additional £180 by not paying the MRCS joining fee, bringing the total savings over four years to £512.
Attending your diplomates’ ceremony once you have passed your exam is also free, giving you a chance to celebrate your fantastic achievements with friends and family.
First 4 your career development: the non-financial benefits
You will also be able to take advantage of further membership benefits tailored to support you during this important time in your training. These will include a mixture of online resources, webinars and events, all developed using trainee feedback. More details to be announced soon.
Not registered to be an affiliate yet?
To be eligible for all the savings listed above you will need to be an affiliate member (only £15 per year) and take the MRCS part B with RCS England. Join now for portfolio-boosting opportunities and to ensure you’re eligible.
