Election to membership occurs when a candidate has passed all parts of the exam and when a Form of Faith has been received, verified and processed satisfactorily. Until this process has been completed doctors are not considered elected to membership. The Form of Faith is retained as a permanent record of a candidate’s agreement to abide by the laws, bye-laws, statutes and regulations of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom.
