As part of its mission to promote medical acupuncture the British Medical Acupuncture Society has chosen to make some of its resources available to acupuncture practitioners who are already members of another national acupuncture organisation, and who are not eligible or do not require membership services from the BMAS. This will permit use of specified BMAS resources to facilitate academic persuits such as education, research or continuing professional development.
Academic Associateship is open to acupuncture practitioners who are members of a recognised national acupuncture organisation (either in the UK or abroad), and offers:
- Full online access to Acupuncture in Medicine (impact factor 1.676)
- BMAS Points Resource
- Access to webcasts & CPD modules related to the BMAS Spring & Autumn Meetings
- Members rates at meetings
The cost is £36.00 per year. Proof of membership of a recognised acupuncture organisation must be submitted to support a request for academic associateship, and at each renewal.
To apply to become an Academic Associate please contact the BMAS Head Office
