Intern Resident Advocate Association (IRAA)

The Auxiliary to MAOPS has formulated a new group of support within our organization. Often when a student graduates from medical school, they are faced with the reality of moving to a new locale, away from their support system or may be moving to Missouri where they are forced to start over.

The Auxiliary saw the need in making this transition less nerve wracking for interns or residents and their families by the creation of the Intern Resident Advocate Association.

Please join us in our mission of welcoming new interns and residents to your area, or perhaps, to Missouri. Our hope is that physicians and their spouses would be willing to host a social event in your specific area. Please contact Glenda Accardo, IRAA chairman, for a list of interns and residents in your area.

The Auxiliary has funds set aside for this program. Click here to download the IRAA application.

Happy hosting!!!
