APA Member Testimonials
Early Career Psychologists
About 15,000 of our members are early-career psychologists, defined as those within seven years of receipt of their doctoral degrees. These members, along with students now in the doctoral pipeline, will determine the future of psychological science, professional practice, education and training.
APA Division Membership
APA’s 54 divisions are interest groups organized by members. APA members can apply to join one or more divisions, which have their own eligibility criteria and dues. Many members find that joining a division adds to their overall membership experience.
Fellow status is bestowed upon APA members who have made outstanding contributions to the field of psychology or evinced exceptional performance. Election to fellow status requires that a person's work has had a national impact beyond a local, state or regional level.
