Annual Clinical Meetings
More ACM Information Coming Soon!
The Society of OB/GYN Hospitalists is a national leader in safe, high-quality, equitable reproductive healthcare. We have championed reproductive rights by signing on to over twenty Amicus briefs for the Supreme Court, to decrease maternal mortality, improve access to care and safeguard abortion rights.
Our 2020 Annual Clinical Meeting was to have taken place in San Antonio, Texas. However due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the meeting was transitioned to a virtual format for the safety of our members. Fortunately, our contracts with our hotel partners in San Antonio were graciously deferred until 2022 and will be fulfilled as we host the SOGH 2022 Annual Clinical Meeting (September 10-14, 2022).
Since 2020, bills threatening access to safe reproductive healthcare have passed in Texas, Mississippi and Ohio and are currently in place in forty other states. We have and will continue to actively speak out against laws that interfere with the medical decision making between a patient and her physician or midwife. These complex and sometimes heart wrenching decisions should be made individually, based on medical facts and the pregnant person’s needs, not broad political agendas.
Our SOGH 2022 Annual Clinical Meeting, OB/GYN Hospital Medicine: Establishing a Foundation for Safe Quality Care, will once again offer both virtual and in-person options for participation. We will focus on cutting edge knowledge in our field and the hands-on skills training that you have come to expect. We will also include opportunities for advocacy for reproductive rights.
We look forward to seeing you join us in our mission to provide the best care to women and pregnant persons.
Registration is Now Open!
Call for Abstracts
Submit an abstract of your research for the next SOGH Annual Clinical Meeting in September 2022. Priority will be given to topics that support OB/GYN Hospital Medicine. Topics may include, but are not limited to, in-hospital Obstetrics, emergency Obstetrics and Gynecology, quality metrics, simulation and staff education, team-based medicine, and communication. Projects of the following types are welcome:
1) Original clinical or basic science research
2) Quality improvement projects, including impact studies and innovative protocols
3) Case report or series
The SOGH ACM is scheduled for September 10-14, 2022. There will be an oral abstract afternoon breakout session and an evening poster reception on Monday, September 12th. While an in-person meeting is planned with virtual attendance options, we anticipate our oral abstract and poster presentations will be presented in person. When submitting, please indicate if you would like to be considered to give an oral presentation at the Monday breakout session, or if your submission is for the poster session only. Please note that all authors with accepted abstracts will need to submit posters and/or presentations in a digital format. Further details of this will be provided with abstract acceptance. In addition, the overall winning abstract presenter will be given the opportunity to present in person to the entire attendee group in the morning on Wednesday, September 14.
One investigator from the overall winning submission will receive free registration to attend the SOGH 2023 ACM. In addition, all authors with selected abstracts will receive expedited review for publication in the Journal of OBGYN Hospital Medicine. Details of requirements for submission to the journal will be shared with abstract acceptance.
We welcome posters by medical students, residents, fellows, APPs, midwives or attending physicians. This is a fabulous opportunity to present your research at a national meeting.
