SAMSoc Projects

SAMSoc members work in first-opinion and referral practices as well as in academia. SAMSoc is therefore a platform to reach potential project collaborators. SAMSoc encourages both advertisement of projects for members (e.g. questionnaire-based studies) and the generation of new projects in first-opinion practice.

For more information regarding being involved with projects, please click here.
