EBCOG Congress - 1st Announcement
The European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (EBCOG), aims to improve the health of women and their babies by promoting the highest possible standards of care through education and training.
The landmark of our educational program is the biannual EBCOG European Congress of Obstetrics and Gynaecology which is attended by Obstetricians and Gynaecologists from all over the world.
Having moved from Lisbon to Antwerp and from Tallinn to Glasgow and then Paris, amongst many other locations over the past few years, the beautiful city of Bergen in Norway, was chosen to celebrate the 27th Edition of this reuniting meeting. Unfortunately, and to our great disappointment, due the Covid-19 pandemic the Congress in Bergen had to be cancelled. Thus, it was decided to organize a Joint 27th EBCOG and 15th Panhellenic Congress in Athens, Greece.
From the 2nd to the 5th of September 2021, we will continue the tradition with 3 whole days of the EBCOG Congress, learning from the most experienced and knowledgeable colleagues in all the major subspecialties and special interest areas of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
As in previous Congresses, innovation will be our highlight. The mobile phone “App” will guide us through the program, with the possibility to interact with speakers. There will be live surgery and breakfast sessions including “meet the expert”, as well as exciting daily science quiz ending each day, where organized teams will challenge each other.
The scientific program will include many high quality sessions and aims to meet the interests of all audiences: specialists, trainees, midwives and students. After a selection process, all delegates are invited to present their work and share their research alongside invited speakers.
The theoretical knowledge sessions will be separate from the skills sessions, allowing lecturers and participants to attend both. There will also be separate sessions for basic knowledge, video presentations and multidisciplinary participation, together with distinguished speakers from other related specialties.
There will be 3 types of skills sessions, based on the level of practical exposure: hands on-training, interactive sessions and masterclasses.
The six keynote lectures, delivered by renowned speakers, will inspire us all and will influence our practice.
At the Opening Ceremony, we will enjoy an exciting lecture on Hippocratic Medicine with an emphasis on Obstetrics & Gynaecology and, at the same time, we will have the opportunity to welcome the new Fellows of EBCOG, who have passed the European Examinations.
The Athens Congress will promote networking and collaboration between countries and give all delegates the opportunity to meet colleagues and friends. The trainees will have their ENTOG - European Network Greek Hospital Exchange, as well as separate sessions at the Congress.
The EBCOG awards for high quality research, as well as the opportunities to publish your abstracts, are also reasons to come and join us for this exciting major EBCOG event in Athens.
In addition, you will be able to visit the antiquities and the museums of Athens, especially the Acropolis and the Archeological ones, and plan some holidays before or after the Congress. We are confident that our Joint Congress will signify the end of this dark period and the return to our normalcy.
We are looking forward to seeing you all in Athens!
