WHO WE ARE

 

The Society of Military Otolaryngologist (SMO) is 501c3 non-profit organization with international military & civilian members including doctors, residents, nurses, audiologists, speech therapists, & technicians.

SMO started as a small group of military physicians, brought together in 1952, as a ways to maintain camaraderie and share best practices with fellow Otolaryngologists.

Since then we have grown to a national level with some members internationally. SMO proudly includes all constituents associated with our profession: doctors, residents, nurses, audiologists, speech therapists, and technicians. 

 

SMO is a membership society with an annual meeting.  We are administered by a board of directors, elected from our membership that serve a four-year term.  SMO also has a member appointed to the Board of Governors of the American Academy of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery Foundation that acts as our liaison in keeping us abreast of changes within our field.
