These awards recognize outstanding mentors who are members of our organization and who have demonstrated a longstanding commitment to mentoring students, trainees, and/or junior faculty. Moreover, through their positive impact on the mentee's careers, they have advanced medical education and research for the benefit of the community at large. Nominations should be submitted to Joan Kemp no later than October 31, 2014. Click for Details (PDF format)

2015 Southern Regional Meeting

Mark your calendars...the 2015 Southern Regional Meeting will takes place at the InterContinental New Orleans on February 26-28, 2015.

Mentor Network

This pilot program is the result of a collaboration between the Southern Society for Clinical Investigation (SSCI) and the Southern AFMR. The program is designed to provide junior faculty ready access to senior faculty outside of their own institutions for mentoring and career guidance. This site will assist junior faculty in finding advisors in their area of interest. Members of SSCI and AFMR at the Associate Professor level or above have agreed to post their brief bios on the site. Junior faculty may choose one or more of these volunteers to set up a mutually agreeable time and place for a meeting during the Southern Regional Meeting.

Welcome to the Southern Society for Clinical Investigation (SSCI)

Welcome to the website of the Southern Society for Clinical Investigation (SSCI). As stated in our mission and vision statements, the SSCI is a regional academic society dedicated to the advancement of medically-related research. Our 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. We accomplish this through sponsorship of an annual scientific meeting and publication of a scientific journal (The American Journal of the Medical Sciences). Both of these venues are committed to helping young investigators, providing them with avenues for scientific expression that is the essence of academic medicine. We seek to encourage their discovery pursuits at the meeting, and if their work comes to fruition in a scientifically sound manner, we encourage submission of a completed manuscript to AJMS. Both of these venues provide the necessary scientific exposure to start a successful career in academic medicine.
