History of NASOM

The Society of Obstetric Medicine (SOM) was founded in 1990 and later became the North American Society of Obstetric Medicine (NASOM). Founding members include Peter Garner, Richard V. Lee, Karen Rosene-Montella and William Baron.

The Society includes specialists from Internal Medicine (General Internal Medicine as well as Internal Medicine subspecialties), Obstetrics, Primary Care, Anesthesiology, and others practicing primarily in Canada and the United States, but we welcome members from all countries.

The goals of our society are to promote and support research collaboration, communication, and teaching concerning the medical care of pregnant women.
