Apply for RCM Fellowship

Applications open from 13th October 2017 – 5th January 2018

The RCM Fellowship scheme recognises individuals who provide exceptional leadership and deliver excellence in practice, education or research. RCM midwife members can apply to be considered for a fellowship and, if successful, applicants can use FRCM after their name.

All successful applicants will receive a certificate and distinctive insignia.

As a FRCM you will receive professional recognition which will enhance your career prospects. You will have the opportunity to contribute to strategic groups, influence national policy and develop working groups. Fellows will receive exclusive benefits such as VIP invitation to the Zepherina Veitch Memorial Lecture. The RCM encourages its Fellows to present and share good practice issues at conferences and events and to engage with opinion leaders and policy makers.

Why should you apply for a fellowship?

  • You can lead on future developments and initiatives in midwifery
  • You have the opportunity to contribute to the national and international development of midwifery
  • You are an ambassador for midwives and the RCM
  • You are recognised and appreciated within your organisation
  • You demonstrate role modelling for peers and colleagues

Equality and Diversity

We are committed to equal opportunities and aim to make sure that all our members are treated fairly and equally. We welcome nominations from all sections of the midwifery community.
