SOF to SOM started with a small group of Special Operations Forces service members connecting through social media to help one another prepare for the MCAT. Eventually, the group grew to include SOF service members who were enrolled in or who had already graduated from medical school. This group evolved into a single comprehensive resource that medics could rely on for their pre-medical school mentorship, from the MCAT to their first day of medical school. The organic development of SOF to SOM culminated in 2023, when various SOF veterans came together to scale this social media resource and officially founded the 501(c)3 organization, the first of its kind to cater solely to Special Operators in their medical education pursuits.
Special Operations Forces to School of Medicine (SOF to SOM) supports United States SOF
service members in their journey to become physicians.
Our vision is to harness the unique SOF culture of excellence to create a cohort of SOF service members physicians that contribute their experience, talents, and traits in service to one another and the field of military and civilian medicine as it takes on future healthcare challenges.
