AMERICAN BOARD OF MEDICAL PSYCHOLOGY Society/Student Membership Application Introduction: There are three membership categories that persons may wish to review and understand. The first is “The Medical Psychology Society Membership”. This membership level simply requires that the member have an interest in the science and related practices of Medical Psychology and a license to practice psychology, social work, counseling, marital and family therapy, or medicine in at least one state or the military. The cost of membership for “the society member” is $75 per year with a $10 added fee if the dues are late (email notifications each year). It should not be represented as a credential of any kind.
The second membership level (Student Member) is for duly matriculated graduate students who are studying one of the disciplines that qualify for society membership above and the fee for this level is $10 per year.
The third type of membership is for Board Certified Medical Psychologists. These specialists in Medical Psychology must keep their dues current annually and are also subject to late fees to support the specialty and remain Board Certified. (See the separate application for Board Certification). These Board Certified Specialists approved by the Board after meeting all the rigorous post-doctoral education, residency/preceptorship, and written and oral examination requirements may represent their level of continued membership as a Credential, Specialist Certification, Diplomate in Medical Psychology and this is the only category that can claim membership as involving a credential.
