The Application Process

Please create and submit the Training Completion Application on the ePortfolio. You can do this two months before you complete your training, however you can only submit the Application when all assessment requirements have been completed on the ePortfolio including the successful completion of all examinations. A Completion of Training Form will be sent for you to complete before any confirmation will commence, this must be signed by your Director of Training and returned to This email address is being protected from spambots.

  2. Once confirmed your application is complete, it will be submitted to the Network for approval and if approved, you will be sent a Fellowship Application Form.
  3. Please complete your section of the Fellowship Application Form and arrange for your application to be certified by two current Fellows of the College.
  4. Submit your completed Fellowship Application form to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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).

Upon request, the College will also send confirmation of your Fellowship to The Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA).

Access to Systems

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.

Fees

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.

  1. A pro rata credit will be issued for your unused portion of student membership fee. The credit period will be calculated based on the financial year.
  2. A pro rata credit will be issued for your unused portion of training fee. The credit period will be calculated based on the calendar year.
  3. A pro rata invoice will be issued for your Fellow membership fee. The period will be calculated based on the financial year.

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”.
