Associate Membership is open to physicians (MD, DO, or international equivalent) who have an active medical license, but are not certified by primary U.S. boards or Canadian equivalent.




Residency & Fellowship

Because residents and fellows are the future of neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic medicine, AANEM offers all the same membership benefits as physician members, but at a deeply discounted price. Members in this category are enrolled in a medical residency or fellowship program.

Technologists

Technologists can play in integral role in the diagnostic process for a patient with a neuromuscular disease. Applicants for this category of membership include nonphysicians who work under the supervision of a physician and assist the physician with nerve conduction studies (NCSs), electroencephelograms (EEGs), intraoperative monitoring (IOM), evoked potentials, polysomnography, and ultrasound testing.

Technologist members must provide either a Letter of Support from Fellow or Active* AANEM member OR a Statement of Responsibility from an Associate* member or nonmember physician. Technologists must agree not to perform or interpret EMG studies or interpret NCSs. Technologists performing NCSs must be under the direct supervision of a neurologist or PMR physician.

Collaborators

Collaborators, or allied health professionals, serve in a variety of patient care and administrative roles in conjunction with physicians. Collaborator members are nonphysicians who agree they will not perform or interpret needle EMG studies or interpret NCSs.  Collaborators can be business administrators managing academic or private neurology or PMR practices, supervisors that no longer perform electrodiagnostic (EDX) studies, or those with special training in the healthcare field such as nurses, physician assistants, or pharmacists.

Collaborator members must: provide a Letter of Support from an AANEM Fellow or Active* member OR a Statement of Responsibility from an Associate* member or nonmember supervising physician.

Researchers

Neuromuscular and electrodiagnostic (EDX) researchers play a vital role in advancing the science of diagnosis, treatment, and care of patients with complex neuromuscular diseases. Applicants for this category of membership include nonphysicians who are a PhD investigator, engineer, holder of a master’s degree, or a graduate student enrolled in a PhD degree program and are currently active in neuromuscular or EDX research.
