Why SORG needs Associate Members?

In recent years, SORG has expanded its regional activities and become a global institution in the delivery of postgraduate oral and maxillofacial surgery. Growth and expansion require motivated colleagues worldwide to reliably perpetuate SORG's teaching principles and ethos through regional course activities, workshops, and symposia. The value of a sustainable professional OMFS social network cannot be understated and is a guiding goal of the SORG family. As the digital world has become the basis of true globalization, we invite you to build your own network. The OMFS world is getting closer and you can become a part of it!
