2023 - 2024 Scholars
For our second-year Scholars, the journey continues as they carve their path towards becoming physicians. Building upon the foundation laid by our inaugural class, these individuals bring a wealth of experience, dedication, and mentorship to the SOFtoSOM community. Many have already played instrumental roles in guiding their peers towards the pursuit of medicine within the special operations forces.
As we celebrate their acceptance into medical school, we eagerly anticipate the impact they will make in the healthcare field. The legacy of excellence and service they uphold serves as an inspiration for future generations of SOFtoSOM Scholars. Congratulations to our second-year Scholars on their achievements and the promising journey that lies ahead.
