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 - £163
Annual subscription is collected by Direct Debit on 1 April each year - £369
Total AiT package cost over three year training period - £1270
For those on four year schemes (or longer), £139 will be taken in April of each additional year in training (these are provided at cost).
The AiT package fees do not cover the examination costs. However they do contain £405 (collected in instalments of £135 as part of your AiT subscription fee over a period of 3 years), which will be deducted from the cost of your examinations (AKT and CSA). The amounts will be made available online (as part of the online exam booking process) when individual instalments are received/cleared. It is therefore important that your AiT package subscription fees are paid in a timely manner.
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 £611
For those on 4 year schemes (or longer) £25 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/course discounts and membership benefits, including the InnovAiT and BJGP journals.
