    Associate Membership Directory

    Please Visit the Associate Member Directory

    It can be found in the link below on Google sheets for ease of use & to promote collaboration for our group!

    This will give members the opportunity to express interest in Associate-specific committees & multicenter studies, identify members who are willing to give grand rounds/lectures in the future, and to reach out to other members at institutions where you may be interested in discussing fellowship or a new faculty position. You may also nominate a faculty mentor to be featured in our #MentorMonday (will be posted on social media).

    Associate What's App Groups

    We are launching several WhatsApp groups - the first includes all of the general membership to communicate directly about AM programming - if you do not want to be included in this WhatsApp group, please email aastam@aast.org to let us know.  Additionally, we are launching three additional WhatsApp Groups: Research (for those who want to be in a text thread about research questions/ideas/collaboration opportunities), Jobs (for job opportunities we are posting or know about that aren’t posted), and Clinical Questions (for clinical questions you have, mgmt conundrums, changes in practice; think of it as having another “partner” to run stuff by).  If you are interested in any of these three groups, please email aastam@aast.org to let her know.
