Student, Intern, Resident Advocate(SIRA)

The Auxiliary to MAOPS has formulated a new group of support within our organization. Often when students and graduates from medical school are faced with the reality of moving to a new locale, away from their support system or may be moving to Missouri, they are forced to start over.

The Auxiliary saw the need in making this transition less nerve wracking for students, interns, or residents and their families by the creation of the Student, Intern, Resident Advocate Fund..

Please join us in our mission of welcoming new students to their medical schools and interns and residents to your area, or perhaps, to Missouri. Our hope is that physicians and their spouses would be willing to host a social event in your specific area. Please contact Roxanne Hubbard, SIRA chairman, for a list of interns and residents in your area.

The Auxiliary has funds set aside for this program. Click here to download the SIRA application.

Happy hosting!!!
