Associate Members

The Fellows and Members Office aims to launch Associate Membership as an additional category in 2023.  

Associate Membership may be of particular interest for:

  • Members of the surgical care team who are not surgeons, but are interested in keeping abreast of surgical news, events and research.
  • Surgeons who do not wish to be affiliated with RCSI through Fellowship or Membership, but wish to maintain a relationship with the College and receive surgically relevant communications.

If you are interested in becoming an Associate Member of RCSI, contact us to register your interest.
