Membership Levels


Professional member shall have completed appropriate training in the assessment and/or remediation of neuropsychological conditions and hold a doctoral degree in psychology or a related discipline from an accredited university. International members are also eligible for Professional membership if a significant proportion of their training and professional activities are devoted to neuropsychology or related fields, and they possess the qualifications (degrees or certifications) consonant with their country’s professional standards enabling them to independently practice neuropsychology. Professional members shall have worked in a setting where such knowledge is applied for a minimum of two years after obtaining their doctoral degree. Professional members shall have full voting privileges, hold elected office, and be members of committees. 



Associate membership shall be open to individuals whose training and experience precludes them from other levels of membership. This may include, but is not limited to, master’s level clinicians, psychometrists, social workers, nurses, physicians, and psychologists not practicing neuropsychology. Associate members do not have voting privileges, may not hold office, but may be members of committees.



Trainee membership is available for up to five years for individuals attending programs leading to an undergraduate or graduate degree from an accredited university, as well as those who are completing internship or post-doctoral supervision/studies. If the training period exceeds the 5-year limit for the Trainee level of membership, written request for extension and verification of status may be made to the Membership Committee. Once a member completes his/her training and becomes an independently practicing professional, his/her membership should be upgraded to either Associate or Professional membership. Trainee members do not have voting privileges, may not hold elected office, but may be members of committees.
