International Membership Application

Prior to beginning your on-line international member application take a moment to save a copy of your current medical license as a PDF or WORD document. You will be asked to attach it later to the application prior to submitting it for approval. Once your application has been approved for membership you will be sent a dues payment form. Dues must be paid prior to enrollment as a member of the APA. Once an application has been approved and the dues payment has been processed, your membership is activated. You will be notified via an e-mail containing your member ID number along with instructions for accessing on-line member benefits. Thank you for applying for membership in the American Psychiatric Association.
