In order to remove financial barriers to participation for all segments of the international, multidisciplinary ISHLT community, ISHLT has introduced a tiered dues structure. The membership dues structure includes distinct pricing for physicians, non-physicians, and trainees, with tiered pricing for high-, middle-, and low-income economies for each, based on World Bank economic classifications.
