My SHM membership is really valuable. It gives me a lot of opportunities to network, meet people and attend conferences. It has helped me hone my skills to be able to become a leader and make changes in my institution.

When I joined as a resident, it was a great way to get plugged in to the hospital medicine community and to figure out what people were doing beyond my own institution.
