How to become a member?

If you are interested in applying to become a SOSORT member we are grateful for your interest! 

SOSORT, like many other scientific societies, has mandated certain requirements that each applicant must attain to be considered for membership. You must be a professional dedicated to scoliosis conservative treatment and share and respect the SOSORT recommendations for scoliosis treatment. In addition to be eligible for membership to the society you must have attended at least one SOSORT meeting prior to your membership application. If  you meet these criteria please complete the online form.

 

Click on the following link to access this     Application form).

Our membership committee will then evaluate your application.  

Eligible candidates will have their membership voted on by the assembly of SOSORT members during the next SOSORT meeting if the submission arrives to the committee before the abstract submission deadline.  

Applications for new members deadline is on the same day and abstract submission deadline. 

If you apply after this deadline, you will be accepted as provisional member, because the committee will need more time to evaluate your position. You'll be voted the next year during the meeting. Please note that to be voted you do not need to be present at that meeting. You need to have already been in a SOSORT meeting before you apply or before being voted by the assembly of SOSORT members.

We look forward to your application.
