Trainee/Student Members   Apply Now  ♦   $40 per year

The Student/Resident/Trainee member is a professional attending post-entry professional training (i.e. residency, clinical fellowship, masters or doctoral programs). Full-time Student/Resident/Trainee and graduate students may use this category of membership for the duration of their training. Documentation of this status will be required (i.e. a letter from supervisor of fellowship training program). The chair of the Membership Committee, as part of the application process, will review documentation of the status. Following training, Student/Resident/Trainee Members may apply for Fellow membership at a discounted rate for two years.


Emeritus Members  ♦   No cost

Fellows in good standing in the ACADEMY for at least ten years may request to have the status of Emeritus Member conferred upon them by vote of the membership committee because of age beyond 70 years, retirement from active practice, or other sufficient reason. Members who meet these criteria and would like to become Emeritus Members should contact the AACPDM office by email or phone.
