Mark your calendars!

We look forward to providing you a spring conference held virtually on April 16-17, 2021. The theme this year is Perseverance. You can look forward to quality CME lectures from the comfort and safety of your home or office. We plan to hold some virtual social experiences, interactive exhibits, and raffle giveaways! Stay tuned for more information coming soon.

In light of the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, the NYSOMS Board has decided to change the format of this event to virtual and take the safest approach for the well-being of our attendees, their families, and the patients they serve. We are excited that by hosting a virtual event, we can be more inclusive of our members and DOs that live outside of Long Island and NYC. We aim to provide our attendees with information on important medical topics that is useful to clinical practice.
