Benefits of Membership as a Student, Resident, and Fellow:

As you begin your career in medicine, cost should never be a barrier to access to information and resources. That’s why your ACMS membership will remain FREE for the duration of your training. If you are a Medical Student, Resident, or Fellow, visit the PAMED website to join.*

*For the 2024 membership year, PAMED membership for students will be $5 and membership for residents is $20. These costs are directly associated with your membership to the Pennsylvania Medical Society.

2024 ACMS and PAMED student and resident membership dues are being subsidized by the Allegheny County Medical Society.

The Allegheny County Medical Society maintains a longstanding tradition of offering free membership to the county medical society for the duration of medical training. We are dedicated to upholding this tradition at the county level. However, last year, a dues allocation was introduced for your Pennsylvania Medical Society membership for the year 2024 ($5 for students and $20 for residents). At a recent ACMS board meeting, it was decided to subsidize the PAMED portion of student and resident dues for the current membership year. This decision underscores our commitment to supporting our members and ensuring equitable access to the benefits of organized medicine.
