The prerequisites for trainees to be admitted to Fellowship of the College (FRANZCR) are:
This page contains all the information you need to know as you complete your training and prepare to become a Fellow of the College. If you are an International Medical Graduate, please see IMG section.
If you submit your Fellowship application paperwork prior to completion of training, you can expect to receive a Fellowship letter within 10 business days from the date of completion of training.
If you submit your Fellowship application paperwork after you have completed training, you will receive a Fellowship letter within 21 business days of receipt of your completed application form.
This is dependent upon whether the Fellowship application was submitted before or after the completion of training date and whether the application submitted was complete. Trainees cannot receive a confirmation letter before their completion of training date.
The College will send Medical Practitioner Information Form to Medicare Australia (for Australian trainees only).
The College will also send confirmation of your Fellowship to The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).
Once your membership status with the College was updated from ‘Student’ to ‘Fellow’, you will receive an invoice from the College to pay your membership fee as a new Fellow. Upon receipt of payment, our CPD team will activate your access to the CPD system. You will also receive a ‘Welcome to CPD’ email from the College.
Fellowship certificates usually are given out at the College’s Annual Scientific Meeting around October each year.
As a Fellow of RANZCR you will no longer be required to pay a student membership fee or training fee. However, as you remain a member of the College you will be required to pay a Fellow membership fee, this will be in replacement of your student membership fee.
If your total adjustments result in a net credit amount, then the credit amount can be taken up against next year’s Fellow membership subscription fee, reducing the amount payable. Both credits and invoices should be selected for payment in the MyRANZCR portal as long as the net total is a positive amount.
If your total adjustments result in a net payable amount, then this amount will need to be paid. Again, both credits and invoices should be selected for payment of the net amount in the MyRANZCR portal.
Adjustment descriptions can be viewed on each corresponding invoice or credit note on the downloadable invoice available through the MyRANZCR portal. Downloadable invoices can be viewed under My Invoices “All Invoices”.
