Dear Colleagues


Obstetricians and Gynaecologists from all over the world take the opportunity to meet up at the EBCOG European Congress of Obstetrics and Gynaecology once every two years.

Having moved from Portugal to Belgium and from Estonia to Scotland and then Paris, amongst many other locations over the past few years, the lovely city of Bergen in Norway, was chosen to celebrate the 27th Edition of this reuniting meeting.

From the 14th to the 16th of May 2020, 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 cornerstone. 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 be packed with high quality sessions and aims to appeal to all audiences: consultants, trainees, midwives and students. After a selection process, all delegates are invited to present their work and share research alongside invited speakers.

The congress 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 upon the level of practical exposure: hands on-training, interactive sessions and masterclasses.

At the opening ceremony, we will enjoy greeting the new Fellows of EBCOG, having passed the European Exam. The six keynote lectures will inspire us all and will influence our local practice.

The Bergen congress will establish links and projects between countries and will permit all delegates to meet colleagues and friends. The trainees will have their ENTOG-European Network Norwegian 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 Bergen.

In addition to being able to attend the exceptional celebration on the 17th of May, the Norwegian Constitutional Day, you may also join a cruise on the world-renowned Fjords of Norway,

 

We sincerely hope to see you in Bergen.
