In 2020, SAMS offered more than 30 hours of CME hours through its conferences and seminars. More than 300 medical care providers from the U.S. and abroad participated in SAMS conferences.

SAMS organizes three main conferences throughout the year: The National Conference, The International Conference, and The National Symposium. These conferences gather renowned medical professionals, educators, and public figures to share expertise and experiences, gain an in-depth perspective on challenges in medical relief, and address current updates and innovations in medicine.  Additionally, these conferences provide a great opportunity to acquire Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits, raise funds to support Syrians in need, stay up-to-date on the crisis in Syria, SAMS’s advocacy efforts for Syria, and innovative humanitarian and relief work from SAMS and our partners.
