American Federation for Medical Research
The AFMR works to support the careers of academic physician-scientists and to develop and encourage young academic and clinical researchers. Some of the ways that the AFMR works toward this mission are Professional Opportunities and Advocacy.
Additional benefits for your residents and fellows are the opportunity to present their research at a regional meeting and be eligible to apply for travel and trainee awards. Many of the academic leaders in our region attend this meeting so it is an excellent opportunity for your trainees to network as they are looking for a fellowship or faculty position. It is also an excellent chance for mentees and mentors to attend the meeting together to showcase their work. We hope you will accept our invitation to attend this meeting and encourage your faculty and trainees to submit abstracts and attend the meeting in Carmel, CA.
Please note the call for abstracts deadline is October 1, 2013. For details: http://bit.ly/14gBxf3
