If an Associate member wishes to vote at all general meetings of the College, they can either apply for and undertake the RACGP Fellowship, or apply for ‘full’ RACGP Membership.

General practice registrars who are participating in general practice vocational training are eligible to become Registrar Associate members. Registrar Associate members have full voting rights.

Medical students who are currently enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate course approved by an Australian medical school, including a Bachelor of Medicine or a Bachelor of Biomedical Science, can join the College as RACGP student members.
