AFFILIATE MEMBERSHIP
For anyone with an interest in Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering; a great option for students. Affiliate Membership is for those who do not yet have a tertiary qualification in a physical science or engineering.  Applications for Affiliate Membership must be proposed by an ACPSEM Ordinary Member or Fellow. It is not, however, required that the Fellow or Ordinary Member proposing the application know the candidate personally.

If you are unable to find an Ordinary Member or Fellow to propose your application, the Membership Committee Chair will take responsibility for doing so upon receipt of your application.

ASSOCIATE MEMBERSHIP
For graduates with a relevant, ACPSEM approved degree in physics or engineering. This category is particularly suited to ACPSEM TEAP Registrars. Applications must be proposed by an ACPSEM Ordinary Member or Fellow, and supported by another. Both the proposer and supporter must know the applicant personally.

Existing ACPSEM TEAP Registrars do not require a proposer or supporter for their application. 

ORDINARY MEMBERSHIP
For graduates with a relevant ACPSEM approved degree in physics or engineering, and a minimum of three years full-time work experience in their relevant field. Applications for Ordinary Membership must be proposed by an ACPSEM Ordinary Member or Fellow, and supported by another. Both the proposer and supporter must know the Applicant personally. Candidates must also provide their CV and two reference letters confirming that they are in good standing in their workplace and/or other relevant associations/ organisations.

Please read through the attached Guide to Ordinary Membership before you apply. If you have any further queries you should contact the office directly before lodging your online application.

If you hold a major ACPSEM Certification you do not need a proposer and supporter for your application nor are you required to submit your CV or reference letters.
