Apply to the Academy

Application for membership into the Academy of Pharmacology Educators is completed online through a system that identifies applications according to a computer’s IP address. Application information will be saved only if an applicant accesses their application with the same computer and the same network on which the application was begun. Applicants are strongly encouraged to collect all application materials and upload those in a single session.  If an applicant’s network assigns random IP addresses it will be necessary to complete the application in one sitting.

Application Review

Applications will be reviewed by at least three members of the Academy of Pharmacology Educators Membership Committee, which consists of the DPE Executive Committee, DPE councilors, and volunteer members from the Division for Pharmacology Educators. Members of the Pharmacology Educators Membership Committee have agreed to forego application to the Academy of Pharmacology Educators until the membership process involves members of the Academy. In order to determine if you meet membership expectations, please review the evaluation criteria.
