SSCI Tinsley Harrison Scholars Program

The Southern Society for Clinical Investigation (SSCI), an organization that has been advancing medical research for over 75 years, announces a new initiative, the Tinsley Harrison Scholars Program. We are seeking applications from postdoctoral fellows and clinical fellows/instructors who are primarily engaged in research to participate in this program as part of the Southern Regional Meeting (SRM) in New Orleans, February 22-24, 2024. Selected scholars will have an opportunity to attend career development programming with division chiefs and leaders in academic medicine across subspecialties, present their original research, and be paired 1:1 with a mentor to help establish connections outside the scholar’s home institution. Those accepted to the program will have their travel expenses (air fare, hotel and registration up to $1,500) reimbursed. Come join the wonderful community of investigators in the lively setting of New Orleans!

To apply, please send Joan Kemp ( an updated CV and a statement (300 words or less) detailing your career goals and how participation as a Tinsley Harrison Scholar aligns with these goals. You must also submit an abstract of your original research for presentation at the SRM ( The deadline for submission of these documents is October 6, 2023.

You do not need to be member of SSCI to apply but will need to join if chosen as a Tinsley Harrison Scholar. To receive reimbursement for your travels, you must commit to attending all required activities of the SRM 2024 (February 22-24).
