Who qualifies for this membership?

  • Individuals who are employed by an accredited institution or program that grants terminal degrees necessary for licensure in the health professions, associations of such institutions, and recognized associations of health professionals that already have a Patron Member.
  • The Associate Patron member cannot accept independent or contractor fees for any advising services outside their college or university employment.

What is the cost?

  • $210

What Is the Region criterion?

  • None, Associate Patron members do not belong to a regional association as they are only comprised of pre-health advisors.

Why is pricing different from Patron Membership?

  • Associate Patron membership is offered at a reduced rate to institutions/organizations that have multiple individuals falling into the Patron membership category. The Associate Patron membership type comes with all of the same benefits as Patron membership but also gives a price break to the institution/organization after a different individual from that institution/organization has already joined as a full Patron member.

What Else is Required for the Form?

  • When you complete the membership form, you will be required to select the membership category that you fit into.
  • You will also provide your institutional contact information such as:
    • Institution Name
      (Be sure to spell out the full name of the institution exactly as it is promoted in the media. Do not use acronyms!)
    • Title
    • Email
    • Mailing Address
    • Phone Number
  • Associate Patron members are also to select the professional field(s) they are associated with. This helps with listing your institution/organization accurately in the back of The Advisor quarterly journal.
  • You will be asked if you have previously held a membership with NAAHP through another institution/organization. If you are renewing under a new institution, this helps us to merge your historical data.
  • Confirmation that you selected the correct membership category for yourself.
  • Confirmation that you have read the NAAHP membership ethics statement.
