Some examples of their work include: annual meeting programming, on-demand education and participation in special Society-wide projects.

Whether focused on clinical practice, education or advocacy, these groups offer you opportunities to influence the practice and study of medicine, network with colleagues in your field of expertise and participate in leadership activities of the society and SIR Foundation. The call for volunteers opens annually on SIR Connect in August. Applicants must submit an online application by mid-September of each year.
