Jordan Beam, BS, Appointed to SMA’s Physicians-in-Training Committee

July 1, 2024 // Southern Medical Association

The Southern Medical Association (SMA) is pleased to announce the appointment of Jordan Beam, BS, to SMA’s Physician-in-Training (PIT) Committee. 

A third-year medical student at UAB Heersink School of Medicine in Birmingham, Alabama, Jordan is currently in Montgomery, Alabama for her clinical rotation year. 

Jordan's desire to be a part of the PIT Committee is largely due to the SMA staff's hospitality during the last PIT Leadership Conference. "Everyone was so welcoming and inclusive and motivated me to join," she recalled. Having been research focused for large part of her pre-med and medical school life, Jordan is excited to also serve on the PIT Committee's Research and Development Subcommittee.  "There is something truly special about being involved in cutting-edge work that has the possibility to heal future generations, she said. I want to be a part of that [sub]committee to help medical students gain access to their schools research opportunities and resources, as well as encourage other students/residents to stay motivated in their existing research projects."

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.
