Vocational registration in Aotearoa New Zealand
If you are an international psychiatrist wishing to work in Aotearoa New Zealand, you can apply for vocational registration as an alternative to the Fellowship pathways.
The Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) regulates specialist registration and seeks the advice of the RANZCP to assess your training and experience as a specialist psychiatrist.
This selection process is separate to specialist assessment and is not a pathway to Fellowship.
You can apply via the New Zealand National Office.
Affiliate membership of the RANZCP
If you gain vocational registration from the MCNZ via this process, the RANZCP invites you to become Affiliate member.
