Of wanting to join the Physicians-in-Training Committee, "I am eager to participate in and contribute to any organization devoted to equipping aspiring physicians with the essential traits of knowledge, empathy, and strength throughout their careers," Grace said. "Additionally, my personal involvement with the SMA has tremendously influenced my life. Surrounding myself with like-minded physicians who stand where I aspire to be, was incredibly encouraging and impactful."

The duties of the Physicians-in-Training Committee are to participate in the development and evaluation of educational activities and programming of the Association aimed at pre‐medical students, medical students, interns, residents, and fellows. The Physicians‐in‐Training Committee will assist the Association in building the Association’s Foundational Pillar that recognizes that physicians in training have importance, special needs, and concerns, and will support their growth and development in their future healthcare careers.
