Welcome to the SSCI
Welcome to the website of the Southern Society for Clinical Investigation (SSCI). As stated in its mission and vision statements, the SSCI is a regional academic society dedicated to the advancement of medically-related research. Its major focus, however, is on encouraging students and post-graduate trainees (residents and fellows) to enter academic medicine and to support junior faculty success in clinical investigation.
This mission is accomplished through sponsorship of the Southern Regional Meeting and publication of The American Journal of the Medical Sciences. Both venues are committed to helping young investigators, providing them with avenues for scientific expression that is the essence of academic medicine.
The AJMS, founded in 1820, is the second oldest medical journal in the United States, and is the official journal of the SSCI.
