These pages tell you about our Senior Fellows Club and will hopefully entice you to join.

The Senior Fellows Club was formed in 1992. The club now as over 200 members, who enjoy friendly meetings, interesting lectures and sociable events.


On our initiative, there is a reciprocity with the Senior Fellows Clubs, or equivalent, of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow and the Royal College of Physicians of London, whereby a retired Fellow or Collegiate Member of one College will be welcomed as a member by the Senior Fellows Club of another should he or she come to live in that other’s area.

We would also welcome any retired Fellow or Collegiate Member of other Royal Medical Colleges including those of Emergency Medicine, Paediatrics and Child Health, Psychiatry, Radiology or RCPI who wish to join.

We can also attend talks organised by the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh's Senior Fellows Club are their members are welcomed at ours.
