It is our great pleasure to invite you to join us in Adelaide for the RANZCOG 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting (RANZCOG 2018 ASM), from 16 – 19 September 2018 at the new Adelaide Convention Centre.

This year’s theme, Shifting Sands, explores the ever-moving boundaries of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. From evolving treatments to revolutionary technologies, we will explore the role of specialists and subspecialists focusing on the need to work together to achieve the very best for our patients.

Our lineup of expert national and international speakers includes Professor Catherine Nelson-Piercy, immediate past president of the International Society of Obstetric Medicine and internationally renowned author of the Handbook of Obstetric Medicine; Professor Adam Balen, Chair of the British Fertility Society and of the World Health Organisation (WHO) expert working group on the management of PCOS for the Global Taskforce on Infertility; Associate Professor Jennifer E. Dietrich, President of the North American Society of Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology; and Dr Peter Rosenblatt, renowned urogynaecologist and laparoscopic surgeon from Boston, Massachusetts.

With an exciting array of obstetricians and gynaecologists, surgeons and physicians, we promise an enlightening balance of evidence and clinical guidance for generalists, specialists, obstetricians, office gynaecologists and complex pelvic surgeons.

The program includes sessions dedicated to the frontiers of surgical and medical obstetrics, the expanding borders of neonatal care, the complex boundaries of paediatric and adolescent gynaecology, the outer limits gynaecological care and breaking new ground in reproductive medicine.

When night falls the party begins. The welcome reception will inspire you with fine wines overlooking the banks of the River Torrens, while the Meeting Dinner, at the world acclaimed Adelaide Oval, will have you dancing the night away at the home of Australia’s sporting legends.

September also promises the possibility of AFL finals in Adelaide, so those inclined may catch a glimpse of the Adelaide Crows or Port Power in finals action.

So with first class education, state of the art facilities, the excitement of finals footy, fine food and wine and great company, the city of churches has something for everyone.
