Fellowship nominations 

We’re now accepting nominations for Fellowship. This is awarded as a mark of distinction and recognition of contribution to psychiatry.

You can apply if you’ve been a continuous member from 1 January 2012 or before that date. We are particularly encouraging women and people from Black backgrounds, with these two areas being the most under-represented groups.

You should aim to show you’ve made significant contributions to the core purposes of the College:

  • setting standards and promoting excellence in mental health care
  • leading, representing and supporting psychiatrists
  • working with patients, carers and their organisations.

Applicants must complete a CV form, Citation form and Good Standing form and email these by 15 September. For the full application process, forms to complete and further guidance please see our Applying for Fellowship page.

The College’s Nominations Committee will decide on all applications in the autumn, and you'll be notified of the outcome in November/December. Please send any queries to membership.operations@rcpsych.ac.uk.
