***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 multiple categories of AADPRT membership:
  • Institutions
    • Individual
    • Residency Program Administrators/Office Staff
  • Affiliate
  • Emeritus
  • International
    *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.
An institution is defined as a (a) general psychiatry residency program and all of its affiliated fellowship programs, or (b) standalone child and adolescent psychiatry (CAP) residency program (in the case of CAP residencies unaffiliated with a general psychiatry residency program). Each institutional sponsor may have individual members who each pay a separate fee.
These may include, but are not limited to, Training Directors, Associate/Assistant Training Directors of general and subspecialty psychiatric residency programs, as well as Chairs, Vice Chairs and Department Heads who oversee such programs.
Each institution shall:
  • Have one (1) vote on each matter submitted for association-wide voting. This vote shall be exercised by an individual psychiatrist member designated officially by the Institutional Sponsor as its representative for voting purposes.
  • 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 shall consist of psychiatrists, including, but not limited to, Training Directors and Associate/Assistant Training Directors of general and subspecialty psychiatric residency programs, as well as chairs, vice chairs, and department heads who oversee such programs, and psychologists who are actively involved in psychiatry residency training (pending AADPRT leadership review). 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

To become an individual member, representatives of the institutional sponsor must complete a membership application and provide payment of individual member dues to the Executive Office. Psychologist member applications will be reviewed and approved by AADPRT leadership. Once the application has been approve and payment has been received, membership shall be granted. One of the individual psychiatrist members will be officially designated as the sole voting member for that institution.

Residency Program Administrators: $500 institution fee is charged to first PA to sign up/renew. Other PAs are complimentary.
This class of membership shall consist of Program Administrators or Residency Coordinators who are actively involved in psychiatry residency training. 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 (VTO) materials
  • Access to the Program Administrator listserv
  • Access to the membership listing from their institution to update accordingly
  • Ability to add and renew memberships for their institution and individual members

To become a program administrator member, program administrators (residency/fellowship coordinators) must complete a membership application. The first program administrator completing the application, or renewing membership, must pay the institution sponsor’s dues. Once the institution dues are paid and the application has been approved, they are accepted as members. Additional program administrators must also complete a membership application without a fee.

Affiliate Members: $400 annual fee
This class of membership shall consist of psychiatrists who do not qualify as individual members of the institutional sponsors and have an active role in residency education. Affiliate members shall not have voting rights. 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

Psychiatrists who fulfill the criteria set forth for membership in this category shall be granted membership upon receipt of a properly completed application and the payment of dues to the Executive Office of the Association.

Emeritus: No fee
A member may become emeritus after they had ceased their scientific or medical occupation for which they received remuneration (i.e. income based on professional services has ceased or is less than 10% of full-time occupational income). Upon approval by AADPRT leadership, an emeritus member will have their annual membership dues waived.

In order to qualify for this category, members should have had an institutional or affiliate membership for a minimum of seven (7) years, and have ceased their scientific or medical occupation for which they receive remuneration (i.e., income based on professional services has ceased or is less than 10% of full-time occupational income).

International: $400 annual fee
This category of membership shall consist of psychiatrists who work as psychiatry residency training directors, or the equivalent, outside of the United States and Canada. They must be sponsored by an Individual Member of AADPRT and verified as eligible by AADPRT leadership. International Members may apply for reduced dues based on financial hardship. International Members must apply by April 1 to be considered for the subsequent academic year (July 1).

Psychiatrists who fulfill the criteria set forth for membership in this category must be sponsored by an Individual Member of AADPRT. Once the application is verified as eligible for membership by AADPRT leadership, they shall be granted membership upon payment of dues to the Executive Office of the Association. International members may apply for reduced dues based on financial hardship.

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.
