About Us

 

Get Involved

Get involved in RCPI and make a valuable contribution to your college, your profession and society.

 

Become an RCPI Trainer

RCPI Trainers play a crucial role in the delivery of our Basic and Higher Specialist Training programmes. They guide our Trainees along the path to becoming a specialist and help the next generation of medical leaders reach their full potential.

As an RCPI Trainer, you have access to motivated, highly-skilled Trainees who have been successfully appointed following a competitive process. These are Trainees who will contribute to a high quality service.

As an RCPI Trainer, we will provide you with advice, training and support through our Physicians as Trainers educational programme.

Contribute to Our Advocacy and Policy Groups

Is there a health-related policy or advocacy issue you want to highlight?

RCPI has long been a well-respected voice in public health debates. Our Trainees, Members and Fellows lead initiatives and discussions that influence government policies, legislation and shape public debate. In recent years we have been to the forefront of policy and advocacy in the areas of vaccination, screening, alcohol, obesity, tobacco, physical activity and ageing.
