International membership

International membership is available to family doctors who successfully completed MRCGP[INT] accredited assessments.

Becoming an RCGP member demonstrates your commitment to achieving the highest standards in primary care. It is also an opportunity to support our important work improving family medicine around the world.

If you are an overseas resident, but have qualified as a GP in the UK, you can apply for the UK membership or Associate membership. If you are an overseas resident who has passed an MRCGP[INT] accredited examination, you can apply for International membership of the College.
