Sidra Medical and Research Center (Sidra) along with the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) will host a joint meeting on "Hot Topics in Obstetrics and Gynaecology" from November 30-December 2, 2014.
Developed as part of the Sidra Symposia Series, this is the first time RCOG has supported an event in Qatar. The symposium aims to inform and educate the medical community, as well as stimulate a discussion with international experts about the future of obstetrics and gynaecology and the profession's development in the region.
RCOG, with 12,000 healthcare professionals spans over 100 countries, and works to promote standards of care in obstetrics and gynaecology through postgraduate medical education and training, publication of clinical guidelines and reports on aspects of the specialty and service provision.
RCOG's global health unit also works with other international organisations to help lower maternal morbidity and mortality. Organising the conference to share the expertise of RCOG members - 17 of whom are present in Qatar with Sidra physicians among them- supports Sidra's goal of making medical education accessible to colleagues throughout the region.
"We are excited to welcome this prestigious organisation to the region and look forward to a robust dialogue around some of the topics most pertinent to women's health today, including infertility management and prevention of cervical cancer," said Dr. Joachim Dudenhausen, Sidra's deputy chief medical officer. "By partnering with RCOG, our popular Sidra Symposia Series has taken on an element of prestige as we bring an expert panel of specialists from all over the world to share their expertise with colleagues in Qatar."
The three-day programme will feature a series of special lectures, interactive panel discussions, hands-on workshops, interactive case studies and training courses.Over 30 international and regional experts will discuss topics ranging from patient safety to prevention of Caesarean sections, with high-profile attendees.
