How to join

A member of the College can join whichever Faculty and/or Special Interest Group they choose, (to join a Faculty or Special Interest Group, please contact the Membership Department) and can be a member of more than one at a time.

The fact that a College member belongs to a particular Faculty or Special Interest Group does not necessarily mean that they work in that field. Equally, it is not a requirement for any psychiatrist to belong to a particular Faculty to work in that area of psychiatry.

Members and Associates may join by completing our online application form or emailing the College Membership office. Others may be invited to join at the discretion of the relevant Chair.
