We'll connect you with someone who has been in your shoes. Their experiences can help shape yours. The Southern Medical Mentors program ensures valuable, informative and accountable interaction between students/residents and practicing/retired physicians...both learning from one another.

SMA and our members give over $50,000/Annually to M4 Medical Student Scholarships at two different conferences every year; the SMA Physicians-In-Training Leadership Conference (Q1) and the SMA Annual Scientific Assembly (Q4). Both conferences provide CME lectures to physicians AND opportunities for students and residents to submit research abstracts for scholarship consideration.
As the name suggests, PIT really is the training ground for SMA's future leadership. It's also where there are multiple opportunities to strengthen your resume for residency programs and fellowships as you continue on your journey in medicine. This program galvanizes the next generation of physicians to stay the course and change the narrative of physician burnout and reduce the physician shortage. We believe that support at each phase comes through building inter-professional relationships and learning to serve our communities and patients through responsible leadership.
