National Conference


Come see all the Section on Pediatric Trainees (SOPT) is doing at this year's National Conference & Exhibition in San Francisco, CA. To many first time attendees, the conference can be rather overwhelming. Please check back periodically for programming updates for the 2016 conference!

SOPT Educational Program (aka SOPT Assembly):

The SOPT Assembly at the National Conference is the annual business meeting for general SOPT 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 AAP Annual Leadership Forum, 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 relatively 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  residency program leaders and have been met with wonderful success.

Finally, the SOPT Reception and Poster Display highlights poster presentations from the SOPT Clinical Case Competition. Dr Deepak Kamath, Editor of Pediatrics in Review, attends and determines the winner from the Top 20 finalists. 

2016 SOPT Assembly Agenda Coming Soon!

SOPT Reception & Po​​ster Display:
