This fee applies to any member who is in private practice. There is no membership category for limited private practice except for the exception explained under Academic membership. If a doctor doing private work of any degree, chooses to be a member of PMG but does not sign up to the Paediatric Governance Project with Discovery Health, that doctor still pays full membership fees.
During your first year in Private Practice you qualify for a reduced membership fee.
This fee is for Paediatricians employed full time in the state sector with no private work. An exception is the state employed Paediatrician whose private sector work is limited to consulting without admissions to hospital. This exception will apply as long as this practice remains a consulting practice only. An Academic PMG member who joins full time Private Practice will qualify for the first year private practice rate for the first 12 months of practice.
