Membership for Individuals - "Direct Membership"

More information for Individuals

Since WONCA first began, many family doctors have expressed a desire to belong to WONCA individually, although they were already indirect members through their national college or academy. The category of Direct Membership was created to enable individual family doctors to have a direct association with WONCA.

Individual Direct Membership

Direct Membership is open to any health professional who has an interest in family medicine/general practice, who supports the vision, mission and goals WONCA, and who wishes to belong to a worldwide network of family medicine/general practice professionals, educators, caregivers and advocates. In addition to regular news and communications from WONCA, Direct Members are entitled to a substantial discount on WONCA conference registration fees.

A special category of Direct Membership is available for Young Doctors.

Life Direct Membership

Provides the opportunity for individuals to make a special gift to the World Organization of Family Doctors in return for waiver of annual direct membership renewal requirements. They receive all the benefits of Direct Membership, plus Life Direct Member Digital Certificate.
