Southern Regional Meeting
The Southern Regional Meeting (SRM) is a joint achievement, sponsored by the Southern Society of Clinical Investigation and its partnering organizations. For the SRM, each year, the Southern Society for Clinical Investigation joins with the southern regional chapters of 4 national organizations:
- the Southern Section of: American Federation for Medical Research (SAFMR)
- Southern Society of General Internal Medicine (SSGIM)
- Southern Society for Pediatric Research (SSPR)
- Southern region of the Academic Pediatric Association (APA)
- American Society for Nutrition (ASN)
Although the organizations differ with regard to membership and focus of interests (internists/adult physicians versus pediatricians; subspecialists versus generalists; mid-career to senior faculty versus early career onward), all are united by their commitment to academic medicine, to the advancement of medical knowledge and to the fostering of the careers of the next generation of physician scholars. These organizations also share the common goal to put together a valuable meeting each year.
Nephrology Young Investigators' Forum
The purpose of the Nephrology Young Investigators' Forum is to create a meeting where research trainees in the SSCI/AFMR region can present their original research observations or data in an informal format. An additional goal is that this forum will afford these young investigators an opportunity to meet peers in the renal research arena that hopefully will emphasize the value of research and promote a favorable image for careers in academic Nephrology/Medicine.
