On 25 June 1639, Sir George Ent became a fellow of the [[Royal College of Physicians]] and remained a fellow for the duration of his life. In addition, he served as a censor from 1645 to 1669 (with gaps in service in 1650, 1652, and 1658), a Registrar from 1655 to 1670, and Consiliarius from 1667 to 1669 and 1676 to 1686. He was elected President of the Royal College of Physicians in 1670 and held the position for five years. He also served on 17 August 1682 and 28 May 1684. Ent was also elected to the [[Royal Society]] as an Original Fellow on 22 April 1663.
 
On 10 October 1646, Ent married Sarah, the daughter of a former president of the Royal College, [[Dr. {{ill|Othowell Meverell]]|wd=Q18530548}}.
 
Ent was also known as an author, a scholar, and an anatomist. He was widely reputed to be exceptionally eloquent, particularly in Latin. He wrote a number of books, the most prominent of which is probably his ''Apologia'', the first book Ent ever published. In addition, he both studied and gave lectures on anatomy. In 1665, his anatomy lectures at the Royal College of Physicians were observed by King Charles II, who knighted him in April of the same year. This remains the only instance in which a man was actually knighted inside the Royal College.
