About SMA’s Scientific Assembly

SMA is committed to meeting the needs of the whole physician, and strives to provide a mix of education, service and camaraderie that empowers members to achieve both personal and professional goals.  SMA’s Scientific Assembly has always been its “premier” event, providing an interdisciplinary forum to enhance the sharing of information, knowledge and experience to advance the practice of medicine, and an opportunity for all generations of physicians to interact and learn from each other.  The 2014 Annual Scientific Assembly has been designed and developed to meet the ongoing continuing education needs of its members and constituents. The format includes sessions that will address, through invited guest speakers and abstract presentations, both clinical and non-clinical topics.  This educational intervention will enhance the ability of SMA members and all healthcare professionals to serve their patients, to fulfill credentialing requirements, and to encourage collegial interaction.
