CINP is the world’s truly global psychopharmacology organisation. It is a membership organisation with worldwide support and welcomes membership applications from all who are dedicated to the highest quality research in neuropsychopharmacology.
CINP membership is based on the calendar year (January 1 to December 31). If you join or renew mid-year, benefits begin with date of dues payment until the end of the same year.
Automatic Membership Approval
In order to facilitate global membership and invite professionals from the neuropsychopharmacological community onto the international stage, the Executive Committee of the International College of Neuropsychopharmacology (CINP) has decided to adjust their vetting procedure for membership.
Professionals that are already member of a specific college may now apply for CINP membership without an additional vetting process and their membership levels will be matched accordingly. Therefore, CINP has decided to automatically approve membership applications from the following societies.

Associate members shall have training or experience in any of the fields relevant to basic or clinical neuropsychopharmacology, including psychiatrists with a clinical focus in psychopharmacology. They must demonstrate to the Credentials and Membership Committee their sincere interest and ability in some aspect of neuropsychopharmacology.Associate Members are not eligible to vote, hold office, serve as members of committees, propose amendments to the Constitution and By-Laws, nominate candidates for officers and members of Council or entitled to receive a discount for CINP meetings.
