Why Join the SSCI?

You belong to national organizations and attend national meetings, so why spend additional time and money on a regional organization and a regional meeting?

Actually, regional organizations and meetings are quite different from their national counterparts, and they serve a different purpose. Being smaller, regional organizations offer greater opportunity for members to participate in organizational activities. Members represent institutions with common challenges, and creative solutions to your problems are often a first name phone conversation or email query away. Among regional organizations, the SSCI remains among the strongest and most financially sound. Its forefathers are the likes of Tinsley Harrison, Paul Beeson, Arthur Guyton, Grant Liddle, and other great academicians with roots in the south.

The SSCI's mission focuses on supporting and mentoring the next generation of academicians - it's less about us and more about them. The organization meets that mission by co-sponsoring the Southern Regional Meeting (SRM) in New Orleans each year as a forum for all residents, fellows, and junior faculty to present their work and interact with experienced investigators and regional academic leaders. Through that supportive environment, we seek to project the excitement of research that will encourage some of these trainees to pursue an academic career. In addition, the SSCI sponsors the American Journal of the Medical Sciences (AJMS) and offers this as a publication venue for complete and scientifically sound research, as well as symposia and other scholarly works.

Benefits of Membership

  • Expand your leadership activities beyond your local institution.
  • Enhance your personal interactions with academic leaders throughout the South.
  • Subscription to The American Journal of the Medical Sciences.
  • Free page charges for publication in The American Journal of the Medical Sciences.
  • Commit a part of your time to building a future generation of academicians.
  • Have a venue (SRM) for all trainees and junior faculty in your group to present their work (generous travel awards for trainees cover most of their travel expenses).
  • Attend an annual scientific meeting that is more enjoyable than overwhelming.
