Each year the Division of General Surgery, University of Cape Town hosts a 2 day Surgical Update Conference which attracts general surgeons from both the State and Private Sector all across South Africa. The 2020 conference promises to build on the standards set at our previous conferences. We will host an “FCS Refresher” Workshop on the 28th of February at Groote Schuur Hospital which is aimed at trainees getting ready to write their final exams this year.
We also have breakfast sessions planned on the 29 February and 1 March 2020 which you will find more information on under the programme tab on this website. These breakfast sessions will accommodate a limited number of delegates, so make sure you book your place now.
Without the invaluable support of our local corporate partners, a congress like this would be impossible so a big thanks to them, who continue to support us despite the difficult economic climate. You can find more information on our sponsors below and clicking on the links.
We have significantly reduced the prices for trainees and students to make it possible for them to attend. We anticipate a full and interactive meeting with delegates from North and Southern Africa, America and Europe - a truly international and multi-cultural meeting.
The congress will have a lot of exciting opportunities for clinicians to engage with new clinical methods as well as an update and overview of surgical techniques. It will also be a great opportunity for senior registrars preparing for exams to get a great overview of important topics in the field.
It is our wish that all our delegates will have a great time in Cape Town and look forward to hosting you at our 2020 Surgical Update Conference.
Head: Division of General Surgery, University of Cape Town and Groote Schuur Hospital
