How to Join

NYCPS is a District Branch of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), representing members in Manhattan and Staten Island. Membership between the two organizations is strictly linked. You cannot be a NYCPS member without also being an APA member.

If you are a psychiatrist who lives or works in Manhattan or Staten Island and are not currently an APA member, apply here.

If you are an APA member, who is not a member of NYCPS, and you live or work in Manhattan or Staten Island, you can request to transfer into the Society.
