Doctoral Student Individual Membership


Doctoral Students not affiliated with an AUPHA Doctoral Program member and who have an interest in Health Administration Education and AUPHA member benefits are welcome to join as Doctoral Student Individual members.

The Doctoral Student Individual membership is a three-year, non-renewable membership, offered at the same dues rate as the regular one-year Individual membership. At the end of the three-year term, Doctoral Student Individual members will receive an invoice for a regular, one-year AUPHA membership. If at any time Doctoral Student members become faculty members of an AUPHA member program, they will be eligible to receive membership benefits through the program membership, at no cost to the individual.
