Are you an associate member of SGIM? SGIM Forum is looking for a resident or fellow member to serve as an Associate Editor on the AE team!

The associate member of Forum will provide an essential trainee perspective on the planning and development of Forum content for our diverse membership. Due to the unique nature of this position, only current residents and fellows are eligible to serve as associate member AE.

  • May be occasionally asked to review/edit submitted articles to facilitate production
  • Participate actively in virtual monthly AE meetings. While schedule conflicts arise and it can be difficult to accommodate all AE schedules for meetings, if you are not able to attend group meetings, you keep in regular contact with other AEs as your proxy and/or directly in contact with the Editor-in-Chief through other communications to fulfil your AE responsibilities.
  • Support, engage in, or promote SGIM Forum activities, including but not limited to Tweet chats, writing portfolio development, mentored writing, virtual or on-site workshops at regional and national meetings for members, etc. For example, promoting and marketing activities may mean sharing marketing materials through social media, local listservs, etc.
