Membership of the IAP is open to any person holding a medical or scientific qualification who has a demonstrable interest in the study of the pancreas. There are 2 ways to become a member.

Dual Membership through Affiliated Associations:

IAP has a unique model where members of various national societies are accorded dual membership of IAP and the parent society. To join the IAP, you must become a member of one of the regional pancreatology interest groups/societies/associations/clubs which have a formal relationship with the IAP. Under agreement with these groups, all financial members of the affiliated organisation shall also be deemed members of the IAP.

Individual Membership:

The second way to become a member is as an individual. You should apply directly to the IAP secretariat and your membership will be activated after due approval by the Council. The membership fee is only $20 under the individual membership
