How to Join ACLP

The application process is in two parts:

  1. Create an account. This form asks for name, address, phone and such. Also the membership category you are applying for, which SIG(s) you wish to join, and payment options.

    Start here and create your account.

  2. Provide professional history, current activities, board certifications, and licensure. On this form you attach your CV and, if you are a postgraduate fellow, resident, intern, or medical student, you attach a letter of verification, on institution letterhead, of your trainee status. This second form must be submitted within 10 days of creating an account.

    Your CV can be a Word-compatible file or a PDF. The letter of verification must be a PDF and include expected training completion date and name and contact details of the training director.

    Finish here and upload your CV and Trainee Verification Letter.

The application process generally takes four weeks and, if selected, you will be invoiced for annual dues at that time. Upon receipt of your dues payment, you will be sent a membership certificate.
