Networking Between Meetings
There are many opportunities to connect with others interested in medical decision making in between meetings and conferences. If you are a member of SMDM, you can join or form an interest group or a regional community in SMDM Connect. In addition, beginning in the spring of 2014, we will have webinars about topics of interest to our community. Stay tuned for more details about this year’s webinars. Possible topics include: talking to the media about research findings, working with project officers, applying to non-federal funding sources, balancing career and family, and applying for university positions as an international student.

I have been coming to SMDM for the past 11 years and return every year because it’s the only society where research is presented, and training is provided on methods of informing medical decision making across the spectrum.continue »
