SBM's Web-based Consultation Program Continues to Grow
Laura Porter, PhD, ETCD Council Chair
We are very excited about the new, web-based Consultation Program! This program was designed to facilitate the exchange of information and resources between SBM members. Prospective consultees can identify expert consultants on the website and contact them with specific questions pertaining to scientific topic areas as well as career development issues. Since beginning as a pilot program in the Fall of 2010, the program's availability has expanded to include all of our Special Interest Groups and SBM members. Currently, we have consultants from four SIGs - Cancer, Integrated Primary Care, Obesity & Eating Disorders, and Child & Family Health. We have recently added consultants for Clinical Career Development Issues. However, it is open to all SBM members regardless of SIG membership. The program is still in the early phases of development, and we need your help to grow this into a valuable resource for the SBM membership. Please consider doing one or all of the following:
The program can be accessed by logging into the Members Only section of the website and clicking on the link to the Consultation Program, https://www.sbm.org/membership/members/consultation. Please contact me (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions about being a consultant or using the program.
