Notify ISMS When You Switch to Part-Time or Retire
Posted on: 8/1/2018

You probably already know that ISMS members who retire are eligible for dues-free membership. But did you know ISMS offers a part-time membership status with reduced dues?

Please contact us ASAP if you are making a career change that impacts your membership status. It’s important to note you must meet certain requirements to be eligible for these membership categories.

For retired members: The definition of a retired physician is those who have been regular members and who by reason of age or incapacity have retired from active practice.  Retired status is not available to physicians who assume compensated positions in the health care field after retiring from medical practice.

For part-time members: The definition of a part-time member is those physicians who work 20 hours or less per week, whether the hours worked are clinically related or another type of health-care related employment. To be eligible for part-time status, the member must obtain a cover letter from their medical liability insurer or a note from an employer verifying their hours of employment.

If you meet or will soon meet the requirements noted above, contact ISMS to complete the form required to switch membership status. Contact membership by email or call 800-782-4767 ext. 1900 to request the forms.
