Can I get a refund?
If your requested withdrawal was received prior to approval you will receive a full refund of any membership fees collected by MDRT. If your request is received after your application was approved, no refund of fees will be made. All fees collected for MDRT membership are refunded if the application is denied.
What is the Online Membership Application System and how does it work?
It is a start-to-finish online approval system that guides applicants through the application process, resulting in immediate approval for membership. After completing all the steps and paying member dues, applicants receive an immediate confirmation of their approval as a member of MDRT.
How long does it take to complete an online application?
If one has all the necessary documentation, the process should take approximately 10 minutes to complete. The system stores the entered data at each step in the process. If there are any interruptions, applicants can resume the process wherever they left off.
Is there anyone who cannot use the Online Membership Application System?
The vast majority of applicants are eligible to use the system. Only those requesting a disability waiver for the first time, as well as anyone with an ethics complaint against them, will be kept from using the system. In those cases, the user must contact MDRT staff and complete a paper application.
Note: Anyone whose paper application has been received and is being processed at MDRT headquarters must complete the paper process and is not able to use the Online Membership Application System.
