Resident Membership Upgrade
Upgrading Membership from Resident Fellow Member to General Member
Resident Fellow Members completing residency are advanced annually based on the academic calendar. In the spring the APA initiate the automatic advancement process by contacting both the Resident/Fellow Member and the respective training program to verify completion of training. You will be automatically advanced unless you notify APA that you are continuing in a fellowship or if the training program cannot confirm completion. If confirmation of completion is not provided, or licensure cannot be verified, your membership will be dropped. IPS dues rates are billed at a reduced rate for the first six years after completing residency training gradually increasing to the full General Member rate on year seven.
