SIR and its SIR Foundation encourage members to apply to join an education or clinically focused committee, or one of the many others that fit your area of expertise or interest. These committees 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.
Committees and task forces
