I wish to opt to pay my JRCPTB fees through the  website – how do I do this?

  • First of all, please enrol with JRCPTB directly and select RCPE as your Lead College to collect your future fees.  You can do this online via the JRCPTB website and you must pay your enrolment fee to them: https://www.jrcptb.org.uk/enrolment.
    You can also contact JRCPTB by email enrolments@jrcptb.org.uk or by phone:https://www.jrcptb.org.uk/telephone-numbers.

  • JRCPTB will automatically notify RCPE once your JRCPTB enrolment is successful.

  • The  Membership Team will contact you as soon as possible after that to confirm that you have registered RCPE as your Lead College for JRCPTB purposes.  If you are not already an RCPE Collegiate Member or Associate Member, we will also send you a link to the relevant application form.

I wish to become a Collegiate or Associate Member, but I am not sure how much to pay as my ‘joining fee’.

  • If you have never been a Collegiate or Associate Member, you will be entitled to a discounted ‘joining fee’. 

  • If you join between 1st October and 31st March, the joining fee will be £60 . 

  • If you join between 1st April and 30th September, the joining fee will be £30

  • In both cases, you will then be required to pay your first annual subscription, on the subsequent 1st October - see subscription rates

  • New applicants for Collegiate Membership 

  • New applicants for Associate Membership form

  • If you have previously been a Collegiate or Associate Member and wish to re-join, please contact our membership  team: memsubs@rcpe.ac.uk or +44 (0)131 247 3675.

Do I get a certificate if I join as a Collegiate Member?

  • All MRCP(UK) diplomates are awarded a diploma and invited to attend an MRCP(UK) Diploma Ceremony when they pass that exam.  There is no further certificate or ceremony in relation to your enrolment as a Collegiate Member, but  you will be entitled to use the post-nominals ‘MRCPE’ in addition to your other post-nominals such as MRCP(UK) or MRCPCH.

Do I get a certificate if I join as an Associate Member?

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide Associate Members with a certificate or attendance at a ceremony.

I require verification of MRCP(UK) – can you provide this?

I am unable to access the CPD Diary

 Please email Christine Berwick, the CPD Diary Administrator c.berwick@rcpe.ac.uk .
