SIS members are welcome additions to the AAPM member community.

Beginning in 2021, the Spine Interventional Society (SIS) will no longer co-publish the journal Pain Medicine with the American Academy of Pain Medicine and the Australian and New Zealand College of Anesthetists (ANZCA) and the Faculty of Pain Medicine (FPM).

AAPM is offering a one-time membership discount for 2021 to all current SIS members at the significantly reduced yearly dues rate of $100.

This membership allows you to continue receiving Pain Medicine through 2021 (offer not available to current AAPM members.) This offer is available now through December 31, 2020.

Anyone who can provide evidence of a current SIS membership and is not a current AAPM members is eligible to receive the AAPM membership discount, so long as that individual is otherwise eligible for AAPM membership. Review AAPM member categories to determine what category is right for you.
