Scientific Assembly

         Registration open through October 27
Event access through September 2021
On behalf of the Special Operations Medical Association, we would like to invite you to the Virtual SOMA 2020 Training, Education, Scientific Assembly and Exhibition.  As you all know, due to safety concerns from the current pandemic, this year's conference in Raleigh was canceled, but in the true spirit of the members of this organization, we have adapted and overcome to put together the same high-quality content you know and expect but in a virtual format.  This is the 32nd annual assembly, and SOMA continues to serve its mission: to advance the science, technology, knowledge, and skills of unconventional medicine to increase survival, reduce suffering, and speed recovery of those who are injured or become ill during Special Operations or Tactical missions.
