AUGIS look forward to welcoming you to the 21st Annual Scientific Meeting which will be taking place from the 19th – 21st September at the Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh. There will be a Gala Dinner at the National Museum of Scotland on the Thursday evening.
When booking your leave, flights etc. please note that the meeting will start at lunchtime on Wednesday 19th September and end at lunchtime of Friday 21st September. In addition, their will be dedicated workshops on the morning of Wednesday 19th for Trainees, CNSs and AHPs.
The provisional scientific programme has been awarded 13 CPD/CME Points by the ASGBI and includes a host of great speakers including Takeshi Sano, Rob Padbury, Don Low, John Windsor, Brendan Visser to name but a few. You can view the provisional programme by clicking here.
Our AHP, CNS and Trainee Members are also invited to attend training days on the morning of Wednesday 19th September 2018.
We will have 10 experienced surgeons available. These include Simon Paterson-Brown and Prof James Garden, both previous AUGIS presidents. The session should not be only for those about to sit the exam but also those trainees who may be a couple of years away from sitting the intercollegiate exam as these sessions will also provide updates on current practice. Although this may seem a daunting session to attend the whole purpose is to improve exam technique in a constructive way.
Pancreatic Cancer UK has a small number of bursaries available to help towards the cost of travel and accommodation for CNSs wishing to attend the CNS and Allied Health Professional morning session on 19th September. Click here for more details
With ample and free car parking available, the world famous Murrayfield Stadium is also only a short tram ride from Edinburgh City Centre. The meeting venue is unique and interesting whilst the beautiful city of Edinburgh has so much to offer and with our stunning Gala Dinner venue we hope that our delegates will take this opportunity to enjoy the city.
