There is quite a bit the Section on Medical Students, Residents, and Fellowship Trainees (SOMSRFT) is doing at this year’s National Conference & Exhibition (NCE) in Orlando, FL. To many first time attendees, the conference can be rather overwhelming. We’ve pulled out what we think you would want to be a part of. Click here for a special invitation to the meeting from the NCE Planning Group Chair.

SOMSRFT Educational Program (aka SOMSRFT Assembly):
Discover the Magic of Medicine: Inspiration from Pediatric Leaders

The overall objectives of our educational program are to promote involvement in the section, improve leadership skills, teach trainees to be the best child advocates possible, and perform critical business functions for continued SOSMRFT operations. We will highlight the section’s annual advocacy campaign and showcase other advocacy projects during our award presentations. We will hold 4 specific breakout sessions covering topics on tips and strategies to prepare for the Pediatric Board Exam, how media affects children, legislative advocacy, and on how to use media to communicate to the public.. Medical students will have numerous lectures/talks during their breakout session as well.

SOMSRFT Reception & Poster Display:
On behalf of the SOMSRFT Executive Committee we’d like to invite you to a special reception Saturday, October 26th from 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Disney’s Hollywood Students. Come enjoy an evening of free food and drinks, while networking and viewing the section’s clinical case posters. Click here for more information.
