LPMA Membership


When you join the Louisiana Psychiatric Medical Association (LPMA), you become part of a member organization of physicians who specialize in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of mental illnesses. The LPMA unites psychiatrists from around the state and brings together practice, education, and research at all levels. As the largest psychiatric membership organization in Louisiana, we are dedicated to promoting the highest quality care for patients, providing continuing education and research into mental illnesses, and advocating for psychiatrists and their profession. Join Now
The LPMA is unified with the APA. Different dues rates are charged for different member classes. Dues are reduced for the first six years of General Membership, to ease the burden of membership for Early Career Psychiatrists. National dues for the APA are separate from LPMA dues. For information about applicable dues, please click on the appropriate links below.
