The Benefits of Joining Doctor Associations
If you’re a doctor looking for a community of like-minded individuals, joining an association may be the best way to go. The Southwest Association of Nigerian Physicians brings together Nigerian physicians in El Paso and Las Cruces to support each other, attend education events, and give back to the communities we serve.
Here are some of the benefits of joining doctor associations like the Southwest Association of Nigerian Physicians:
Benefit #1: Find “Your People”
People always talk about the benefits of finding your people. No matter who these people are—fellow knitters, writers, artists, doctors, and so on—surrounding yourself with like-minded people can be great. Doctor associations can do this for doctors looking for a community of people similar to themselves, including people who know what it’s like to be a doctor, who understands the stresses, fears, and trials of working in the medical field.
Benefit #2: Become More Involved in the Community
Being a part of an association gives you more opportunities to participate in activities in and give back to the communities we serve. This includes fundraisers, volunteer work, galas, scholarship opportunities for youth in the community, and more.
Benefit #3: Find More Opportunities & Resources for Your Work
Whether you’re looking for volunteer opportunities, grant and research information, and other events and resources, being a part of an association can help you make connections and find the information and resources you need to be successful.
Benefit #4: Connect With People Outside of the Practice
Being a part of an association allows you to meet new people and reach out to others throughout the community. You can network, connect with, and make a difference in the lives of others around you. Joining an association gives you the opportunity to branch out and explore the world around you.
Benefit #5: Celebrate Nigerian Culture in a New Place
While this isn’t common with all associations, the Southwest Association of Nigerian Physicians celebrates Nigerian culture, which can help especially if you’re practicing medicine in a new place. We support each other and make Nigerian culture the center of everything we do.
