84th Annual Scientific Congress
The 2015 Annual Scientific Congress will provide delegates with the opportunity to participate in an exciting scientific program exploring the theme of ‘Ethical challenges faced by surgeons both in peace time and in times of military conflict’.
Featuring the involvement of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, we look forward to their participation in both the Scientific program and the social program. Those who can remember the RCSEd involvement in an earlier Adelaide meeting will attest to the value of the input of the Edinburgh College Fellows in both areas of the Congress.
The scientific program will run over four days from Tuesday 5th May to Friday 8th May. With over 26 section programs being convened, there is sure to be one that relates to your area of practice. A new feature being trialled this year is a “ring-fenced” Thursday morning in which most of the cross-discipline sections are putting on their main programmes, with the craft related sections excluded that morning. This gives delegates the chance to attend what looks like a real treat of sessions without having the “pull” of their main discipline to distract them – these will include for example Surgical Oncology, Women in Surgery, Rural Surgery and Quality Assurance and Audit.
