APSA is strongly committed to supporting the development of physician-scientists from all training backgrounds. Whether it be MD, MD/PhD, DO, DO/PhD, DVM, DVM/PhD, VMD, VMD/PhD, and many more, we welcome anyone and everyone to join us in our mission to address the needs of physician-scientist trainees. With this in mind, we are excited to announce our new membership requirements! We are proud to open our membership to anyone "aspiring to be a physician-scientist". Beginning now, any physician-scientist trainee at the medical student level or above is eligible for full membership. Participation in a dual-degree program is not a prerequisite to be a physician-scientist, and in fact, physician-scientists who do not hold a research doctorate such as a PhD make up over 3/4 of the membership of the ASCI and AAP, the premier honor societies for physician-scientists. APSA is proud to be the voice of ALL physician-scientist trainees, regardless of training path.
