Tiered Dues Structure for International Members

For many years both the Membership and International Relations Committees have sought a way to structure SAGES individual dues so that surgeons in developing countries could participate in SAGES. These are surgeons whose income levels cannot sustain the regular $350 per year International Membership dues. Until recently, we were unable to find documented figures indicating the actual income per capita.

Our International dues structure includes three tiers of membership dues for International members. Please see the table below for lists of countries that qualify for the reduced annual dues.

In the spirit of fairness, SAGES has made a special effort to offer International membership rates based on available economic indicators. We are aware that physician income is not always a reflection of the local economy. Therefore, SAGES asks that if a member or applicant’s economic status warrants, he/she will elect to pay the full membership fee of $350 per year

If you have any questions about membership in SAGES or which category you should apply to, please contact the Membership Department or call (310) 437-0544 x 110.
