AAIM is a consortium of five unique, professional associations for faculty and staff who work in departments of internal medicine.  Combined, the five charter associations focus on all aspects of internal medicine education and training, as well as administration of the department of internal medicine.  Each association in the consortium maintains its own membership structure and membership criteria. 

Membership invoicing process for academic year 2014
Membership dues are presented on a single, consolidated invoice to the chair of the department of internal medicine.  The invoice covers all AAIM charter association--APM, APDIM, ASP, CDIM, and AIM--memberships.  With a departmental payment, chairs can enroll an unlimited number of individuals in each charter association.  Each individual must meet the charter association's eligibility criteria.

How are FY 2014 departmental dues assessed? What are the rates?
A single fee is charged to departments. The fee is based on the number of filled positions per internal medicine program within the department.  The rates are listed below:

Why does AAIM have one invoice?

  1. To ease the member’s annual administrative burden.
  2. To help new members enroll more easily; no payment will be necessary if the departmental fee has been paid.
  3. To allow chairs to provide professional development to an unlimited number of qualifying faculty and staff in their departments.
  4. To ease the department’s administrative burden by paying one fee for all members each year.
  5. To continue integrating the five charter associations.
  6. To increase membership in all charter associations; strengthening the voice of AAIM.

What happens if my chair does not pay the departmental fee?
In the event that a department chair does not enroll his/her department with the consolidated invoice, individuals do not have the ability to enroll as an individual member in a charter association.  If an individual is not in an eligible department of medicine, they may apply for individual membership. For more information, please contact the AAIM office at (703) 341-4540 or

Who can I contact if I have questions about this invoice process or the status of my membership?
