Fellowship

The Academy requires all constituent Colleges to provide at least 6 years of supervised specialist training. During the training period an intermediate examination and a final examination / exit assessment must be organised for specialist trainees individually by the respective College or jointly with an established overseas College. Passing the final examination / exit assessment is a prerequisite for specialist trainees to be nominated for Fellowship of the Academy. 

The Academy Council determines the assessment criteria for admission to various categories of membership, including examinations, assessments, qualifications, experience, training, and continuing medical education. The Council may from time to time amend such criteria. On the recommendation of an Academy College, the Academy Council may admit as a Fellow any full member of that College who has fulfilled the admission criteria. The Academy retains absolute discretion over which nominees should be admitted as Fellows of the Academy. 

A Fellow may at the same time hold more than one Fellowship of the Academy. Fellowship of the Academy may cease unless the requirements for continuing medical education, or assessment as determined by the Academy from time to time, are satisfied.
