SMSNA-SSMR Traveling Fellowship Program
The Society for the Study of Male Reproduction (SSMR) and the Society for Sexual Medicine of North America (SMSNA) are proud to announce the Annual Traveling Fellowship Program; 2016 is the tenth combined award for the two societies. The SSMR and SMSNA, AUA-affiliated subspecialty societies, have a mission to promote the advancement of the science and treatment of male reproduction and sexual disorders; this is accomplished through education of practitioners, education of the lay public, and informational exchange of research and new advances. Meetings such as the AUA annual meeting and the subspecialty symposia organized by both our groups help achieve these goals. The SSMR and SMSNA are committed to cultivating interest in infertility and sexual medicine treatment careers in trainees, specifically through participation in these meetings. Our goal is to present residents in training with a more intensive exposure to male fertility medicine and sexual medicine. Fellows will attend AUA post-graduate courses in male infertility, erectile dysfunction and the infertility podium and poster sessions; there is also a symposium with fellowship directors and faculty members on how to prepare for a future successful career as an andrology specialist. The program will allow significant contact between fellows and leaders in the field.
