In 2008, as part of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) partnership negotiations with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (American Society), our Council negotiated a streamlined pathway to membership with the American Society.
All members of the Australian Society can apply for International Membership, International Candidate Membership and access to the International Trainee Forum of the American Society.
How does it work?
The Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons can now act as the proposer for our members who wish to join as International Members or International Candidate Members. Full international membership is USD425 per annum. An application fee of USD125 is levied, although this may be waived if you use insert the promotional code “384” on the application form.
How do I apply?
- Download the International Membership application form or the International Trainees Forum application form.
- Request a letter of support from the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons’ Office.
- Submit your application, support letter from ASPS and other documentation to the address / email on page one of the linked form.
- At present the American Society votes on membership applications four times per year: January, March, July and October.
- Once you have been accepted as a member of the American Society, the American Society will invoice you directly for the subscription. Thereafter you will be invoiced annually by the American Society.
