Getting involved

There is a way for everyone to get involved with the College

There are many opportunities to get involved with the College, and we actively seek the help and support of our members, other healthcare professionals and the public as we work to improve healthcare worldwide through education, training and improving clinical quality.

There are many ways to get involved. These opportunities can be stimulating and rewarding, offering professional and personal development at any stage of your career. Remote participation is possible.

It doesn’t have to be now; opportunities to get involved with the work of the RCR come all the time. See below for information about how to get involved.
