Become an RCR member
How to join
There are a number of different ways to become a member of the RCR depending on where you are in your career.
You can become a trainee member of the RCR if:
- you are undertaking specialist training in clinical oncology or clinical radiology
- you have not yet passed the final FRCR examination.
You can become a full member of the RCR if:
- you are in a non-training post in clinical oncology or clinical radiology
- you have a postgraduate qualification in clinical oncology or clinical radiology, other than the FRCR
- you have passed the first FRCR examination.
Associate (non-training) membership
You can become an associate of the RCR if:
- you are employed in a non-training post in clinical oncology, clinical radiology, dental radiology or a closely associated specialty
- you do not have a postgraduate qualification in one of those specialties.
Breast clinicians, or Fellows and full members of the Institute of Physics and Engineering (IPEM) can also apply to become associate members of the RCR. Please contact our Membership Department to apply.
You can become a Fellow of the RCR if:
- You have passed the College's final Part B examination in clinical oncology or clinical radiology
- or if you meet the criteria for Fellowship without examination.
As a Fellow you can use FRCR after your name, providing your subscription is paid. We also encourage you to stand for College Council and other offices, and vote in College elections.
Any RCR member may put forward an honorary member nomination for someone who has directly engaged with RCR activities and made a significant contribution to the specialties of oncology or radiology in the UK.
Honorary fellowship is a prestigious award available to those who are not a Fellow or member of the RCR, but have made exceptional contributions to clinical oncology or clinical radiology, or promoted the interests of those specialties at a national or an international level.
