Donate to the Research & Education Endowment Fund
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.
- To provide an investment in the future of medical and healthcare innovation and delivery;
- To stimulate interest in conducting health care related research;
- To provide financial aid in the form of scholarships to medical students;
- To recognize or memorialize donors and their designees.
The Southern Medical Association was founded in 1906 as a scientific body of physicians dedicated to fostering the art and science of medicine through education. SMA Members’ commitment to multidisciplinary, interprofessional education has endured for over 100 years.
Since that time, members have supported SMA’s mission through membership, donations, publishing, speaking, or directing educational programming. This support has been used to create thousands of hours of education, the publication of more than 46,000 scientific peer-reviewed journal articles in the Southern Medical Journal, and more than $3.5 million in financial support through scientific research grants, loans, and scholarships.
