Membership: Special offers

Special offers for Residents, Students and Fellows
Residents, Students, and Fellows benefit from two special membership opportunities that have been established with their particular needs in mind.  AES believes it is important to encourage and support young clinicians and scientists entering the specialty and are pleased to make these special rates available to make it easier for you to join the Society and benefit from the networking, mentorship, career development and clinical and scientific resources offered.

Special First Year Membership Rate for Junior Members (Residents/Students/Fellows)
The American Epilepsy Society offers a special reduced membership rate for new, first year members in the student/resident/fellows category. 

The following are the special reduced rates for first year Junior Membership: 

  • $35 (without Epilepsia subscription)
  • $110 (with Epilepsia subscription)

Regular Junior membership rates, which apply for renewal after the first year, are $75 (without Epilepsia) and $140 (with Epilepsia).  Regular rates are still a reduction from full Active member rates.

Kenneth R. Kaufman Fund for Psychiatry
Those individuals enrolled in either psychiatric residency or psychiatry fellowship programs would benefit from the professional networking and collaboration AES membership provides. The Kenneth R. Kaufman Fund for Psychiatry was created by Kenneth R. Kaufman, M.D., MRCP, (former Membership Committee Chair), to encourage engagement by psychiatrists in AES and by so doing increase the visibility of the psychiatric aspects of epilepsy. 

Literature notes that control of depression has a direct correlation to improvement in Quality of Life for persons with epilepsy.  Dr. Kaufman created this fund in the belief that increasing the number of psychiatrists involved in the care of persons with epilepsy would decrease the treatment gap. This fund subsidizes up to 75 qualified students training in Psychiatry for AES membership.

Dr. Kaufman has also supported the establishment of the Rebecca Goldberg-Kaufman Ethical Psychiatry Award, presented at the AES Annuall Meeting, for the poster whose topic includes  research or treatment in both areas.
