Professionalism, Perfection and Problems. 
AGES heads west for our first ASM in Perth in 15 years!

Dear Colleagues, 

I would like to invite you to  Perth, Australia’s sunniest capital city. Situated on the Swan River, Perth boasts beautiful sandy beaches, one of the world’s largest inner city parks - Kings Park, and the Botanic Gardens, which offer a sweeping view of the city from Mount Eliza. 

The  scientific committee has developed a core program that covers these three key principles – Professionalism, Perfection  &  Problems.   

As always we strive for Perfection in our surgery and patient care and also in teaching and education. We use Professionalism, in managing this journey and overcoming the many Problems that we face as we travel our pathway. 

We have a stellar team of international keynote speakers already assembled for the meeting including Associate Professor Sawsan (Suzie) As-Sanie from the University of Michigan. Suzie is the Director of minimally invasive surgery at the University of Michigan, and is a world-renowned expert in the field of endometriosis and pain. We also have Professor Johannes (Hans) Evers of Maastricht University and Editor in Chief of Human Reproduction that will strengthen the scientific focus of the meeting and look at the scientific evidence basis of fertility management. Finally, Dr Marcello Ceccaroni from the International School of Surgical Anatomy in Verona will also be joining us, (previously called the Che Guevara of surgery). Marcello will give you a view of pelvic anatomy and dissection techniques beyond the realm of normal, including an exciting “Live” surgery session.

Along with this amazing international faculty, we have the local and Australasian faculty who will further complement this team, bringing you a meeting that simply cannot be missed! 

I look forward to seeing you all in Perth in March 2019!
