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 linked. Membership includes benefits at three levels: national (APA), State (New York State Psychiatric Association), and NYCPS, at the local level.

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.
