USMLE Step O is what we should name it. (The osteopathic component).

wow so edgy, hip and cool!
SOMA helped push SAS and NRMP/ERAS filter changes
That’s not a particularly adult reaction to someone pointing out that SOMA is little more than a chance to feel like you did something. Much like a model UN, no one really cares what they pass. At some point those students can join the “real” organizations and may change the rules themselves as members of the nbome or aacomas or even legislature

I saw somewhere that in this resolution, it was made clear that students are "grateful" for the NBOME or some such. While I can understand the purpose of such language, a majority of the DO students are not "grateful" for this organization. I am curious why SOMA, an organization that represents the DO student body has not made such resolutions more public? Like why hasn't an email been sent out to every DO student/school saying "this is our position" or something. I can promise that only about 2 students at my school even know this is going on. Also, if they just had this big meeting, why not make a statement against the administration of PE during a pandemic? Does the NBOME have a representative within SOMA?

There is a SOMA rep on most relevant national medical organizations and they have direct pathways to submit resolutions to both the AOA and AMA

And that is a more important position than a soma resolution
After SOMA passes a resolution it goes on to the AOA house of delegates where they will vote to also take the resolution on...

Edit: to also add, SOMA is a direct way for students to show the AOA where they stand on issues.

I’m aware of the process

It means little, don’t hold your breath. Still better than nothing though. Like the impeachment, it doesn’t matter what stance they take if the next step will absolutely shot down.
