Equality and diversity: Age

Your life experience and perspectives enrich the College and we want you to share them across our communities. Our inclusive approach aims to foster and maintain a talented group of individuals, of all ages.

We have active communities of Medical Students and Foundation Doctors, through to Later Career and Retired Members; a thriving mentorship scheme; and a variety of events that rely on the breadth of experience across our whole membership. 

Here you can read community stories, tell us your own story, and find helpful resources to develop your learning.
