Become an International Member

Our past several International Street Medicine Symposia have been attended by individuals from over 80 countries around the world.  Wishing to continue to foster and celebrate the expertise and diversity contributed by all of you to the street medicine movement, the Street Medicine Institute, with guidance from worldwide partners and board members, is introducing an international membership donation for citizens of countries other than the United States based on the published Cost of Living Index (COLI) data.  We are implementing this adjustment in recognition of the importance of remaining an inclusive community where we can all learn, share ideas, and innovate together. 

The new international membership categories include three groups organized by country and the COLI for that country.  Citizens of Group A are offered a 40% discount from our standard membership donations for physicians / administrators and other healthcare professionals, Group B receives a 60% adjustment, and citizens of Group C are free.  We understand that COLI varies over time; if you believe your country is more appropriately placed in a different group, please email us at [email protected] so that your concerns can be considered.  Free membership for students and persons with lived experience remains our standard regardless of where you live throughout the world.

We would also like to remind you that registration for SMI’s first-ever virtual symposium (October 15 - 17, 2020) is free with your active 2020 membership.  Please join us as a member and a participant!  Once you become a member, you must separately register for the symposium.  If you have any questions or difficulties, please email us at [email protected] for assistance.
