Your Service Needed on WSMA Early Career Section Governing Councils

Nominations for early career section governing councils are due Aug. 15.

Your service is needed to help us shape resources for your fellow young physicians, residents, fellows, and medical students, and increase involvement at the WSMA. You can make a difference!

The WSMA is seeking passionate members to serve on the governing councils of the association’s three early career sections:

  • Young Physician Section (members 40 years of age and younger or in the first 10 years of practice)
  • Resident & Fellow Section
  • Medical Student Section

By serving on your respective section’s governing council, you join a select group of WSMA members dedicated to helping their peers and making a difference at their medical association. Time commitment is minimal and largely virtual—length of service is one year starting this fall, with virtual meetings held monthly.

Here's what to do to be nominated:

  1. Are you a member of WSMA? If yes, then skip this step. Not a member? Join today! It’s free for students, residents, fellows, and for physicians in their first year of practice (membership is discounted for physicians in their second year of practice).
  2. Email your letter of interest and CV to Milana McLead at by Aug. 15.

Service on each council begins at the 2019 WSMA Annual Meeting (Oct. 12-13) in Seattle (the annual meeting is free for all WSMA members).

Not interested in council leadership? You can still be involved with WSMA. Our events and meetings are open to all young physicians, residents, fellows, and students.
