Applying to Join AGA
Full payment of current membership dues and application fee must be provided at time of submission. New members will not be activated without full payment.
Special Membership Requests
AGA offers senior membership to current AGA members, both full and international, who have reached the age of 70 years old and are not in arrears (current) in their membership dues. Members must complete a senior member request form that is reviewed by the AGA Governing Board.
This category of membership suspends the requirement to pay membership dues for the duration of your association with AGA as a senior member; however, should you wish to maintain a subscription to AGA journals, Gastroenterology and Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, you will need to pay for them separately. As a senior member, you retain all rights and privileges of a full member.
To obtain a senior member request form or if you have additional questions, please contact the Member Relations and Constituency Programs Department at 301-941-2651 or by email at email@example.com.
AGA does offer disability membership to members who are unable to carry out their daily duties due to their disability. A change to this member type is subject to AGA Governing Board approval. The dues are $50 per year, and you maintain your benefits and right to vote with the exception of the journals. The journals can be purchased separately if you elect to receive them.
To obtain a form to request disability membership or you have any questions, please contact the Member Relations and Constituency Programs Department at 301-941-2651 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To obtain copies of the AGA’s patient education brochures, visit the GI Patient Center and download copies by topic.
Through a grant from Ironwood Pharmaceuticals, AGA is now offering members free, printed patient education brochures on irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
First, log in to gastro.org as a member and then order your free printed IBS patient brochures.
The printed brochures come in packs of 24. Each member is limited to four packs for a total of 100 free printed brochures. Shipping charges apply.
If you are still in a fellowship program, you must submit a Trainee Certification Form with the signature of your program director stating that you are still participating in a fellowship program and/or undertaking an advanced fellowship. They must sign and date the form along with supplying the date you will be completing the training as well as where this training is taking place.
Once this form is received, along with your dues payment for the current year, we can then continue your status as a trainee member.

To access the journals through the link www.agajournals.org, select AGA Member Login. The site uses single sign-on, so you will then be asked to log in with your AGA username and password. The first time you log in there may be a quick registration where you can indicate if you would like updates, otherwise you will be taken directly into the online journal.
Since both Gastroenterology and Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology are part of the member benefits package, we are unable to stop them. We are also under a contractual arrangement with our publisher. If you do not have a use for the paper versions, please consider donating them to a library, medical school or another colleague who would benefit from the vast information they contain.
The Elsevier Journal website and AGA society website are separate sites. However, they do utilize single sign-on, so your society login details will work on the Elsevier Journal website to gain access to the journals online.
Please visit the following websites below when accessing your journals online.
If you encounter any problem accessing the sites, deleting or clearing the cache and cookies of your web browser may resolve this issue.
