UK Trainees - Subscribe to the Trainees’ Register
You need to register with the RCOG website before applying to join the Trainees’ Register. If you’ve already registered, please log on to the website using the ‘Sign in’ button in the top right-hand corner of the page. If you’ve registered but have forgotten your password, in the ‘Sign in’ section select the ‘forgotten password’ option to reset your password.
To subscribe, please complete the UK Trainee application form. Please allow 14 working days for your application to be processed, and remember to keep the College informed of any changes to your contact details.
The annual subscription fee for UK Trainees is £137. This includes the licence fee the RCOG pays to the Training ePortfolio providers, NHS Education Scotland (NES), for service provision and ongoing support. The subscription is valid for a 12-month period from when we process the payment. We will email you near the end of that period to remind you that your subscription is due for renewal.
It may take up to two weeks for your application to join the Trainees’ Register to be approved and your payment processed. You will not receive access to the benefits of the Trainees’ Register, e.g. TOG and StratOG, until your application has been completed.
International Trainees - Important update
From 1 September 2016, all international Trainees and examination candidates will only have the option to become an RCOG Associate. This will be retrospectively applied to anyone who was previously registered on the international Trainees’ Register.
Becoming an RCOG Associate is the first level of professional membership of the RCOG for doctors that provides you with the tools and resources to keep your O&G knowledge and skills up-to-date, advance your career development and deliver the highest standards of care to your patients.
As an Associate, you’ll have access to a pathway towards full RCOG Membership for those who choose that option. For those who decide not to take the MRCOG examination, you’ll continue to have access to the information and resources you need to develop your skills and expertise in women's healthcare whilst being part of a global network of experienced O&G practitioners.
