How to renew:
1) Log in to your account between 7/1 and 9/30.

1) Log into your Program Administrator account

***Institutional membership is required in addition to Individual memberships***

Welcome to AADPRT! Membership is one of the truly great values for Program Directors, Assistant and Associate Directors, and Program Administrators. Whether you are a new member or a “Lifer," AADPRT values your membership and works to provide the resources you need to train the next generation of psychiatric leaders.

AADPRT welcomes applications from institutions and individuals involved and interested in the education of psychiatry residents. Memberships are valid July 1 – June 30. Pro-rated or discounted fees are not given.

There are four categories of AADPRT membership:
  • Institutions (required in addition to Individual memberships)
  • Individuals
  • Affiliates
  • Residency Program Administrators/Office Staff
    *Note: Residents cannot be AADPRT members)
Institutions: $500 annual fee
The institution fee is charged to the first Residency Program Administrator to create/renew an account. This class of membership consists of psychiatric hospitals, departments of psychiatry, and other institutions that maintain accredited psychiatry and psychiatric subspecialty residency programs or stand-alone child and adolescent (CAP) residency programs (CAP residencies unaffiliated with a general psychiatry residency program). Each institution may have multiple psychiatrists with their own individual membership. Each institution shall:
  • Have one (1) vote on each matter submitted for association-wide voting
  • Receive up to two (2) complimentary subscriptions to Academic Psychiatry Journal. If an institution has only one individual member, the institution will receive only one subscription. Subsequent subscriptions are $88 each.
Individual Members: $250 annual fee -- This is in addition to the required institution fee.
This class of membership is for Training Directors and Associate/Assistant Training Directors of institutions. All Training Directors representing an institution must apply for an individual rather than an affiliate membership. Individual members have these benefits:
  • Access to the website including Virtual Training Office (VTO) materials
  • Access to listservs
  • Access to the Mentorship Program
  • Complimentary subscription to Academic Psychiatry Journal (2 per institution; additional subscriptions are $88 ea.)
  • May submit a workshop and/or poster for consideration for the Annual Meeting
  • May submit an awards nomination for consideration for the Annual Meeting
  • Reduced member registration fee for the annual meeting
Affiliate Members: $400 annual fee
This class of membership consists of psychiatrists who are not active Training Directors but who are interested in the association and its mission. When choosing this category, choose "AADPRT Affiliate Members" as your institution. Similar to individual members, each affiliate member receives all of the aforementioned benefits plus:
  • One (1) complimentary subscription to Academic Psychiatry Journal
Residency Program Administrators/Office Staff: No individual fee ($500 institution fee is charged to first PA to sign up/renew)
This class of membership consists of Residency Program Administrators or staff persons representing a member institution. Program Administrators are not eligible voter representatives for an institution. Each Residency Program Administrator member has the following benefits:
  • Access to the website including Virtual Training Office materials
  • Access to the Program Administrator listserv
  • Access to the membership listing from their institution to update accordingly
  • Access to add and renew memberships for their institution and individual members

Residents: AADPRT does not currently offer membership to residents.

Membership is activated once the application is reviewed by the Executive Director and payment has been received and processed. We strongly suggest all members consider credit card payment to expedite the process. Check processing for membership can take up to two (2) weeks once payment is received. No benefits are available until membership is paid in full.

Membership Frequently Asked Questions

How do I pay the membership fee?
AADPRT strongly encourages payment by credit card, however, checks are also accepted. A membership isn’t activated until payment is received and processed. For credit card payments, this is typically within 24-48 business hours. For check payments, this can take up to two weeks after payment is received. Check payments MUST be accompanied by the AADPRT system generated invoice in order to be processed.

If I renew my membership by check, do I lose account access until the check is received?

No, you still have access to your account. However, your account will be locked after 9/30 if we have not received your check.
