Providing quality health care for the people of the Southeastern United States presents specific challenges. Medical professionals face mounting economic, social, educational, and political obstacles to providing quality care for its people. With the South facing a physician shortage of more than 100,000 by the year 2030, there is now more need than ever to support the professional development of the next generation of healthcare leaders.
At SMA, we believe that we can help solve many of the problems facing healthcare in the South simply by gathering around the table of education to learn, to connect, to lead and to support one another.
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. When you donate to medical education through SMA's Research and Education Endowment Fund, your generosity becomes synonymous with helping to solve the growing deficit of physicians and medical professionals that serve our region.
All contributions of up to $100k are placed into the Research & Education Endowment Fund. When you donate to medical education through the R & E Fund, every penny of your generosity is invested into an account that is restricted to carrying out SMA's educational, apolitical mission.
