RESEARCH & EDUCATION

In 1986, SMA established an Educational Endowment Fund to provide funding for scholarships, research projects and other programs supporting the educational purposes of the Association. With any gift,  donors may establish memorials for loved ones or recognition for a colleague. Purposes of the Fund are: to provide an investment in the future of medical and health care delivery; to stimulate interest in conducting research; to provide financial aid to deserving medical students; to initiate a professional career development relationship with SMA; and to recognize or memorialize donors and their designees.

FOUNDATIONAL PRINCIPLES

HOW WE CARRY OUT OUR MISSION.
  • COLLABORATION

    "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts." - We believe in fostering relationships with  entities and organizations with similar and complementary missions and memberships.

    That's why we are a 501(c)(3). We exist to improve the entire system of healthcare.

  • ACADEMIC ENGAGEMENT

    Our mission centers on education, so it's imperative that we engage with and support the efforts of medical schools, residency programs, academic medical centers, and health systems by supporting the professional development of the next generation of healthcare providers.

  • YOUTH ENGAGEMENT

    We acknowledge the needs and concerns of medical students, residents, physicians, and health care providers of all types; the importance of supporting their professional development and passing along knowledge and experience from one generation to the next.
