The College is committed to positively influencing healthcare, professional standards and health policy.  We are proud to be run by our Fellows and Members for our Fellows and Members, with operational support from College staff.

Run by our Fellows & Members

We bring together an international community of inspirational physicians who strive to ensure that patients receive the highest standards of care by providing lifelong education and training opportunities. 

By pursuing clinical excellence and the best possible patient care, we are here to support and nurture the next generation of physicians.

The College is governed by a Council, College Laws, Royal Charter and specific committees.

In 2023, members of the College's Council and Senior Management Team were invited to complete an EDI survey to provide us with information about the diversity of our leadership. 19 members of Council completed the survey (58%) and 4 members of SMT (100%). The College will use this information to identify existing gaps or issues and work towards improving them, with regular review.

We are pleased to recognise and pay tribute to the lives and work of many of our Fellows and Members. You can read these tributes here. These Fellows and Members have helped to shape the work of the College and the profession more widely.
