Congratulate Your Graduate

TheHealthPsychologist News from the Society for Health Psychology

Congratulate your Graduate is a successful new membership initiative that benefits our student members, their advisors, and the Society. Each year we welcome a new crop of graduate students who completed their graduate training and received their degrees. Please consider taking advantage of this membership initiative. We are now extending this benefit to internship and postdoctoral fellowship supervisors who also want to congratulate their graduates.

Eligible graduate students, upon completion of their degree in 2020, receive a free year of professional membership in the Society for Health Psychology for 2021. Graduate students/Trainees are eligible if their dissertation advisor (or co-advisor), internship supervisor, or fellowship supervisor is a current member of SfHP.

To obtain this benefit, the advisor (or co-advisor) or supervisor must complete a brief form, which can either be scanned/emailed to or snail-mailed to the Society for Health Psychology (APA Division 38), PO Box 1838, Ashland, VA 23005.

As our colleagues begin their careers as health psychologists, we hope this new initiative provides them new opportunities to engage with and contribute to the Society.

If you have questions about the process – about how to “Congratulate your Graduate” – please contact the SfHP Administrative Office at
