To join the UKSBMuksbmflyer

The simplest way to join the UKSBM is to attend our annual scientific meeting, as membership fees are built into conference registration fees. However, you may also join the Society without attending the conference by completing the membership form. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our membership secretary.

For a subscription of £45 a year (£15 for students) you will receive regular updates on UKSBM activities, reduced rates for attending meetings, affiliate membership of International Society of Behavioral Medicine and electronic access to the International Journal of Behavioral Medicine and the Journal of Behavioral Health Services and Research.

UKSBM membership categories

Membership status is awarded to individuals based on the information provided on their application. Individual memberships are not transferable. Membership does not certify competence in behavioural medicine and cannot be used as an indication of competence in any representation to the public.  Full and student members have the right to vote on the main policy or administrative issues of the UKSBM.

Full membership confers the privilege of voting and holding office. The requirements of full membership are a) that the member is resident in, a citizen of, or working in, the United Kingdom and b) completion of an undergraduate degree and/or completion of relevant clinical training. Commercial conflicts of interest may be considered with regard to committee membership.

Student/Trainee membership is reserved for those who are enrolled in a course of accredited study or training, full-time or part-time. Student/trainee members pay a reduced fee. Students/trainees are required to provide proof of their enrolment in study or training and information about the duration of their study/training to the membership secretary at the time of application or renewal each year. Part-time students who are concurrently employed in a clinical capacity are not eligible for student membership.

Associate membership provides membership for those who agree with the purpose and objectives of the UKSBM but who do not meet the requirements of full membership. Associate members do not have voting or office-holding privileges. Membership fee is the same as full membership.

Private or commercial organizations judged by the governing body to be supporting the goals of the UKSBM may become a Benefactor.
