Annual Meeting In-PersonHilton Chicago Hotel, Chicago, Illinois, May 11-15, 2022
Annual Meeting Virtual Highlights Event: June 4-5, 2022

Following the huge success of the 2021 Annual Meeting, which drew 945 attendees from 30+ countries, the 2022 Annual Meeting has evolved to include not only a live, face-to-face event in Chicago May 11-15, 2022, but also a virtual event to follow a few weeks later. The 2022 Annual Meeting is two events in one!

The 2022 Annual Meeting will address the theme, “Maternal and Neonatal Healthcare Inequities: How We Can Do Better for Our Patients." It will feature high-quality research presentations and a dynamic program focused on the latest advances in the practice of obstetric anesthesia. The collaborative environment and CME-approved education program will attract thought leaders from around the world. As always, our program will feature the high level of quality you expect from a SOAP event.

To accommodate those attendees who are not able to attend the Annual Meeting in person, we are offering a deconstructed model. The Annual Meeting Virtual Highlights event will leverage a curated offering of popular recorded content from the in-person event plus new, original content. This allows SOAP to serve a global audience and those unable to travel.

The SOAP Annual Meeting is a must-attend event for anesthesiologists, obstetricians, neonatologists, obstetric medicine specialists, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, residents, fellows, medical students, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) and Certified Anesthesiologist Assistants (CAAs).
