2MEMBERSHIP TYPESAPS membership is open to individuals in education, research or industry, as well as those pursuing a course of study in the field of physiological sciences or related disciplines. Our community of leaders connects people and ideas, creating momentum toward future discoveries. Regular $220Choose this membership if you are engaged in physiological work, related disciplines or involved in the promotion of these disciplines. This includes researchers, scientists, educators and anyone who supports the mission of the Society.Trainee $50Choose this membership if you are a current postdoctoral fellow or early-career professional working as a trainee in physiology or a related discipline. Trainee members may remain in this category for up to three years from terminal degree receipt date.Student $25Choose this membership if you are currently enrolled in a doctoral or master’s program and are actively engaged in physiological work or a related discipline, or if you are an undergraduate student with an interest in physiology. This membership is also designed for those who have completed their baccalaureate degree (within the past five years) and have not entered a graduate program but have an interest in physiology or a related discipline.Institutional Group MembershipThis cost-saving membership option is available to degree- or nondegree-granting educational or research facilities that provide undergraduate, predoctoral or postdoctoral trainee programs in physiology or related disciplines. Institutional group membership gives an entire division, department, program, lab, research team or university access to the benefits of APS membership. Learn more at
