membership application

APPLY NOW Joining the New Jersey Psychiatric Association means that you will also become a member of the American Psychiatric Association (APA).  Dual membership is a requirement. Joint APA and district branch membership makes for stronger representation and promotion of the profession. The district branch offers more personal interaction and deals with issues on the state level. The district branch and the APA work together to bring you information, educate the public and provide development opportunities. The application process and dues collection is administered through the APA. Visit the APA website to review Frequently Asked Questions about membership requirements and processes. If you have additional questions, contact the New Jersey Membership Coordinator at the APA.

Psyched about NJPA Membership

“The Association is committed to supporting its members in each of their varied practice settings and in all stages of their careers. I like knowing that my professional organization doesn’t take a “one-size-fits-all” approach to member services!”
