Meeting & Membership Scholarships
The Society for Medical Decision Making has secured funding for a limited number of meeting and membership scholarships. All scholarships include SMDM membership through December 2023 including online access to the SMDM journals. There are scholarships available for in-person attendance and for remote attendance.
Applicants must fall into one of these categories:
• Resident in a Low- or Middle-Income Country (LMICs) as identified by the World Bank; or
• Trainee, defined as undergraduate, graduate or doctoral students in clinical or non-clinical settings, and post-doctoral students, residents, and fellows in academic settings. Faculty and full-time research employees do not qualify as trainees.
SMDM is committed to inclusivity and supporting a diverse community. It values the diversity of racial and cultural identity and background, nationality, sexual and affectional orientation, gender identity and its expression, religious background and belief, age, mental and physical health and ability and other diverse identities and their intersections. Preference will be given to assist those traditionally underrepresented in science and to those who have no alternative funding to support their participation.
Trainees also need to submit the Trainee Verification Form. Completed applications must be received by June 30, 2022 to be considered.
MDM offers rigorous and systematic approaches to decision making that are designed to improve the health and clinical care of individuals and to assist with health policy development.
