Pre-Med Events in Georgia!

AACOM and many of our member medical schools will be in the greater Atlanta, Georgia region the week of October 21-26, 2013 participating in the Georgia Grad Fair Circuit

Additionally, AACOM is extremely pleased to partner with the Georgia Campus - Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine (GA-PCOM) in announcing their Pre-SOMA event on Saturday, October 26, 2013 in Suwanee, Georgia. 

This free, interactive conference is designed especially for aspiring pre-medical students and pre-health advisors to participate in. The event is designed as a way to promote Osteopathic Medicine and awareness of the many opportunities that come with being an Osteopathic Physician.  The event is scheduled to begin at 7:45am and end at 5:00pm.

Space is limited at this free event – so please encourage your students to register early.  A commemorative shirt, along with continental breakfast and lunch will be provided to all attendees!

Pre-SOMA medical student leader-lead conferences are designed to provide information on Osteopathic Medicine for Pre-Health Advisors and Prospective Students, while also an opportunity for Pre-Health organizations at undergraduate and graduate schools to learn how to establish a Pre-SOMA Chapter on their campus.  Pre-SOMA is on Facebook!  


The SOMA convention is taking place on Saturday and Sunday, September 28th and 29th at Mandalay Bay.  Pre-Meds are encouraged to attend both days.  You can sign up by joining Pre-SOMASOMA at then while logged into to the website clicking on “Events and Education” then clicking the calendar to “September” then clicking on the event.  Alternatively, once logging in you can click this link.
Make sure you are logged in to your pre-SOMA account so the price will be decreased from $100 to $40.
On Saturday September 28 you will be able to attend SOMA workshops geared towards professionalism and a Pre-SOMA workshop.  Once we get word from SOMA on the official SOMA workshops, we will be designing a Pre-SOMA workshop for one hour which you can also attend.  Make sure to check back here for more updates!  On Sunday September 29 you can attend SOMA workshops and meeting and attend the Pre-SOMA Meet and Greet
The meet and greet is from 3-5pm on Sunday and features a brief lecture on “What is Osteopathic Medicine,” followed by about 90-100 minutes of walking around the admissions fair with representatives from many of the Osteopathic Medical schools.
