As you know, the street medicine movement has exploded over the past 15 years and the Street Medicine Institute has fueled this tremendous growth. Such growth comes with ever-increasing operational costs – costs that cannot be covered by intermittent donations alone. Therefore, in recent years, SMI began asking its non-student members to make an annual donation with a specified amount that varied by profession. Beginning this year, student members will also be asked to contribute a significantly reduced donation of $39 annually given that we enjoy the benefits of an SMI membership in addition to SMISC-specific benefits. We want to be as transparent as possible with you all in this process, thus we have outlined below what your donation will give you access to.

SMI Student Member Benefits:
