Graduate Member Initiative

The Society believes that newly-trained health psychologists should consider the Society for Health Psychology as one of their primary professional communities.  To this end, graduate students whose dissertation advisor or co-advisor is a member of SfHP will be eligible for, upon completion of their degree (in 2016 or beyond), a free year of (non-student) membership in the Society for Health Psychology.

You may apply for membership online here. You will be transferred to the APA payment site where you will be given several payment options. If you have any questions please contact APA Division Services at 202-336-6013. Dues are payable in U.S. dollars and are subject to change annually.
