Dear Colleagues and Friends,

The European family of obstetricians and gynaecologists (EBCOG) together with the Polish Society of Gynecologists and Obstetricians will join for an unforgettable meeting in Krakow, Poland.

EBCOG together with the special interest societies like, ESGE and the subspeciality societies like ESHRE have joined the Polish Society who has an enormous and well-respected tradition in our field. The ideal moment and place to come together and exchange our experience, to present our novel scientific findings and enjoy the famous hands-on sessions of the EBCOG congresses.

We will not only celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Polish Society but moreover offer a unique gathering in the field of our profession with carefully selected scientists from all over the world. Science and education can not be stopped by pandemics, politics or international conflicts and it is time to meet each other and exchange, discuss, learn and enjoy.

The most respected European scientists have agreed without hesitation to come to Krakow for their keynote lecture. This congress will offer you insight in novel techniques, debates on equal opportunities, accreditation of centers, staff training, Women’s Rights and influence of Climate changes on our well being, prenatal diagnostics,  gynecological oncology, obstetrics and much more.

Together with the European Network for trainees (ENTOG) we reach out a special hand to all residents and young professionals, as this congress will really provide you information and training at affordable conditions. We also will offer the possibility to perform the level 1 and 2 certification of the GESEA programme, the universal entry gate to becoming a gynaecological surgeon.

Women’s health in Europe is the challenge of today.

Are you ready to face up this challenge?

Join us in beautiful Krakow the old royal capital of Poland.
