Apply for a Fellowship

Have you made a significant contribution to psychiatry? Then you may be able to apply for Fellowship.

We’ve extended the deadline for applying for this special mark of distinction until 31 July, so you still have a week to prepare your submission.

If you have been a Member for 10 years or more as of 1 January 2020 (joined as a member on 1 January 2010 or earlier), you can apply.

Applicants are asked to demonstrate 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 an online form, which should take approximately 15 minutes, by 31 July 2020.

For the full application process and forms to complete please see our Fellowship page. The College’s Nominations Committee will decide on all applications in the autumn and applicants will be notified of the outcome in October/November.
