Annual subscription fees are set each year as part of the College’s budgeting process. This involves significant planning across all areas of the College, followed by detailed review by the College’s Finance Committee and Board.
A major priority each year is to limit the level of fee increases, whilst ensuring sustainability of the College’s ongoing activities.
The College’s activities relating to the RANZCP training program, examinations and Fellowship attainment, as well as external projects, are self-funding.
Audited financial reports are included in the Annual Report each year.
