Categories of members in the SDRME are:
- 1. Regular Members
2. Emeritus Members
3. Ex-officio Members, and
4. International Affiliate Members.
Because the purpose of the organization is for the director or head of a unit, membership in the organization is by individual, not by organization. While there are institutional conditions that are necessary for membership consideration, only the director or head of the unit is granted membership. The complete statement of membership conditions is included in Article III in the bylaws. The essential institutional elements for Regular Members are:
a. The unit must have a functional role in an accredited allopathic or osteopathic medical school. The unit's role must have institutional scope with responsibility for medical education research in the school.
b. The unit must stand as a recognizable, coherent, organizational identity within the institution.
c. It must be identified as conducting research in undergraduate medical education.
d. There must be clear authority and primary responsibility for the research conducted within the unit, whether or not the unit involves multiple administrative lines.
e. There must be identifiable medical education research facility. The director must be actively involved in medical education research.
