The American Federation for Medical Research (AFMR) has a rich history with the goal to foster excellence in training and successful development of young investigators. The multi-disciplinary nature of the AFMR allows our members and junior faculty to tap into the professional network of colleagues in other academic medical centers. We also have a well-established platform to promote education as well as mentoring opportunities for medical students, trainees, and junior faculty through our regional and national meetings. AFMR is also a great organization for junior faculty to take on several leadership roles at our regional sections or at the national level. Through these roles, members will have the opportunity to learn leadership skills, planning the meeting/symposium, and interact with colleagues or leaders from several medical specialties.
AFMR publications reflect our organization’s commitment to enhance the training and career development of the AFMR members. The Journal of Investigative Medicine (JIM) is a great platform for our members to disseminate their research work. The Journal of Investigative Medicine High Impact Case Reports (JIM-HICR), an open access journal, is a good forum for trainees to publish their unique and unusual cases.
It is my privilege and honor to serve as the President of the American Federation for Medical Research this year. Please join the AFMR to start your professional journey with us.
