Information for new fellows

Congratulations on reaching this major milestone in your medical career.

Whether you're starting out as a specialist, or being admitted to fellowship for a second time, this section covers  everything you need to know as a new fellow, from being presented at the college ceremony and finding your regional representative to building your professional networks.

College membership is a condition of fellowship and the use of the post-nominals FANZCA or FFPMANZCA. It gives you access to an extensive range of resources and activities designed to support you at every stage in your career and help you meet your continuing professional development (CPD) requirements.

All fellows enjoy a wide range of member benefits, which we'd encourage you to explore. The following pages feature activities, advice, and opportunities that we think will be of particular interest at this point in your professional journey, including a few we've developed especially with our new fellows in mind.
