Member Benefits

The Southern Medical Association is one of the few truly non-political associations remaining.  SMA is proud of this status as it allows the focus of the association to remain unbiased in its development of educational learning and procurement of products and services for its members.  SMA’s advocacy efforts on behalf of its members are accomplished through education and a set of principles as set forth by our governing body.

Membership has its privileges. Find out about the latest Member Benefits, and how they might help you personally and professionally.
