Join the Community of Leaders in Pain Research and Treatment
Only together can we improve the relief of pain.
American Pain Society (APS) membership gives you access to a variety of benefits, including an expansive community of more than 2,000 leaders in the research and management of chronic pain as well as resources to improve treatment and evidence-based research.
A Multidisciplinary Membership
APS supports professionals in the field who are working to increase the knowledge of pain and transform public policy and clinical practice. Members come from a broad spectrum of disciplines and work settings, including scientists, clinicians, and other professionals. APS offers several membership categories to address the various needs of our diverse membership.
APS supports your professional development through quality education and opportunities for networking and volunteering to share knowledge and collaborate with the best and the brightest researchers and clinicians in the field. Funding opportunities to support programs that advance the science of pain also support your efforts to reduce pain-related suffering.
Meet APS Members: Individual members of our community share their experiences in the field as well as their history with the society and how they have benefited from membership.
