Joining & Fees

All Membership fees are categorised according to occupation and the country where the member resides, the table at the foot of the page gives the rates applicable for the current year.

As with all small membership societies our preferred payment method is by DIRECT DEBIT, this form of payment helps the Society to forward plan its finances.  All new members opting to join by direct debit enjoy a discounted rate of membership and can pay by a single instalment or by four quarterly instalments.

The BMUS membership year runs for 12 months from the date of joining. During the month preceding the end of your membership year,  an e-mail notification of your renewal for the following 12 months will be sent to your preferred contact address.

Student membership 

A digital Student membership is applicable to individuals who are on a full time recognised Ultrasound training programme, leading to a national award or a PGC/PGD/MSc in Medical Ultrasound or any other ultrasound training programme that BMUS Council may recognise from time to time. Student membership is not available to those attending short or focussed courses.

Student Membership applies for 12 months and is payable by a single instalment.  All student memberships will automatically increase to the Preceptorship category at the end of the 12 month period, unless the member provides evidence of the continuation of their education.  

BMUS Student members are also able to join the International Society for Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynaecology (ISUOG) for 2 years free of charge due to a partnership arrangement between the two Societies.  Further information can be found here and to take advantage of this offer please contact ISUOG on
