Memberships in the Society

The Society for Participatory Medicine has active, engaged members representing dozens of countries around the world. Our members include patients, physicians, nurses, caregivers, policy makers, consultants, and others who are part of the healthcare system in their country. Your support and contributions to the cause of participatory medicine will not only help you become better engaged with your own (or a loved one’s) healthcare and treatment options, but will also help spread the word about this growing trend.

Become a member!The Society for Participatory Medicine would not exist without the continued support and contributions of our members. Your dues directly enable our programs and services to help forward the goals of participatory medicine. We provide a host of resources — from our online community and groundbreaking journal, to our patient travel scholarship, conference discounts, and ongoing virtual events — that are only made possible due to your continued support. When you become a member of the Society, you become a member of a growing network of informed, dedicated patients and professionals who understand the value of a true partnership in healthcare.

One of the primary benefits of membership in the Society is knowing that you’re doing something to help make a positive impact on thousands of people’s lives who are helped by the respect and dignity embodied by the tenets of participatory medicine.

Membership payments are considered a tax-deductible donation. As no goods or services are received in exchange for membership, membership fees are deductible to the extent allowed by law.
