Postgraduate Course in Surgery - Cancelled

This year's Annual Postgraduate Course in Surgery has been cancelled due to the coronavirus (COVID19). We regret having to take this course of action and look forward to resuming our conference as usual next year and for years to come. We very much hope that you will be able to join us in April 2022.  The Annual Postgraduate Course in Surgery updates practicing surgeons on current topics, concepts, issues, and problems relative to the broad field of general surgery.
