Join RCGP: trainee GPs

 Congratulations on gaining a GP Placement and welcome to the RCGP

The GMC have designated the Royal College of General Practitioners the responsibility for facilitating your training, therefore we have created a series of membership packages to help you through these exciting and challenging few years.      

Associate in Training (AiT) packages

Our Associate in Training (AiT) membership package is the most cost effective way to get all the tools you need for GP specialty training. Along with access to your ePortfolio, being an AiT will give you membership benefits, which include:


Fees for GP trainees

AiT (an RCGP member)

Initial registration fee payable by card online: £167

Annual subscription is collected by Direct Debit on 1 April each year: £240

Total AiT package cost over three year training period: £887.40

For those on four year schemes (or longer), £142.50 will be taken in April of each additional year in training (these are provided at cost).

The AiT package is designed to support your training needs, however, if you would prefer not to register as an AiT but still need access to the Trainee ePortfolio, you can register as a non-member.

Non AiT (not an RCGP member)

Total package cost payable by card online £625.5

For those on 4 year schemes (or longer) £25.10 will be payable in April of each additional year in training.

The above non AiT fees only cover your RCGP certifications costs and your access to the Trainee ePortfolio. As a non-AiT you will NOT have access to any other RCGP tools, OLE, exams or course discounts and membership benefits, including the InnovAiT and BJGP journals.
