Where the Future Leaders of the Family of Medicine Connect.

Improving the Quality of Patient Care for the next generation begins here. Our multi-disciplinary network of the SMA Physicians-In-Training (PIT) consists of Medical Students and Residents with one goal...to connect with one another, with their communities and with experienced Practicing Physicians through educational, social and developmental opportunities.

Through SMA Mentorship, abstract presentations, scholarship opportunities and leadership development initiatives, the PIT program is how SMA is working to help solve the growing problem of physician shortages across our region.
