Credentialed Memberships
Share |

Clinicians who devote the time and resources to educate themselves about integrative pain management deserve recognition. We have always felt this way, and have designed programs to provide that recognition. The program we now offer is the Advanced Pain Management Practitioner (APMP) Certificate – Prescriber Edition, available to MDs, DOs, NPs, PAs, and CRNAs.

For Currently Crendentialed Members:

Although we no longer offer the General Credentialed Pain Practitioner (GCPP) Program, we continue to honor these titles:

  1. Diplomate of the Academy of Integrative Pain Management (or DAIPM)
  2. Fellow of the Academy of Integrative Pain Management (or FAIPM)
  3. Clinical Associate of the Academy of Integrative Pain Management (or CAAIPM)

All requests for verification of the above credentials should be sent with a release of information form, signed by the clinician in question.

Please note: The Academy of Integrative Pain Management was formerly known as the American Academy of Pain Management (or AAPM) and all titles for credentialing used to correspond to our previous name (DAAPM, FAAPM, CAAAPM). All credentialed members were issued new certificates with a letter explaining the change in representation of their credentials. If you are a credentialed member and have not received a new certificate or have questions about how you should represent your credential, please contact the Project Manager for Professional Development at

How to Maintain and Renew Your Credential:

Certificates are valid for four years at a time, beginning from the date that you passed your examination. In order to maintain your credential, you must:

  • Be an active credentialed member of the Academy of Integrative Pain Management. As of March 2018, credentialed membership dues are $350/year. Multi-year credentialed memberships are available! Commit for two years for $560 (20% savings), or three years for $785 (a 25% savings). Renew your membership here.
  • Keep a clear and unencumbered clinical license.
  • Complete 25 hours of continuing education per year, or 100 hours over a four year period. You will need to provide documentation of your continuing education only if you are selected in a random audit. Five of these hours must be fulfilled by completing the GCPP Renewal CME Bundle program in our online Pain Care Learning Center that covers topics we feel are critical for all pain practitioners to master.

If all requirements above are met, you will be issued a new digital certificate at the end of each four year period.
