SOMSRFT Educational Program (aka SOMSRFT Assembly):
Program Theme -

Be Our Guest: An Invitation to Learn How to Be an Effective Child Health Advocate and
an Academy Leader within Your Professional Home

The SOMSRFT Assembly is the annual business meeting for general SOMSRFT members.  The Assembly serves as the forum to conduct critical business matters such as election of national officers, development and approval of Section resolutions to be submitted at the ALF, and basic training of new Executive Committee members.  Moreover, the Assembly serves as the primary forum to debut the Section's Annual Advocacy Campaign, present significant awards, and to meet senior AAP leadership.

Two specific proposed sessions merit further mention.  First, the Medical Student program has been a new and highly appraised event specifically geared toward medical student issues such as becoming an excellent residency applicant and how to determine the best residency program.  These sessions are led by local residency program leaders and have been met with wonderful success.

Finally, the SOMSRFT Poster Display highlights poster presentations from the SOMSRFT Clinical Case Competition.  Dr Kamath, Editor for Pediatrics in Review, attends and determines the winner from the Top 10 finalists.
