Fellows and Associate Fellows are also encouraged to familiarise themselves with the CPD requirements in relation to ongoing membership, which are outlined in the RACMA Constitution.
In addition to the College’s requirements, Fellows who are registered with the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) or the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) under the speciality of Medical Administration, are also required to meet specific regulatory requirements.
