About this event

The first event of the academic year will present an introductory talk on endometriosis, followed by trainees discussing its management, and a PhD student in endometriosis presenting their work in the first session. The second session will define premature birth. It will help you identify risks of premature birth and know about its prevention and its management. Understand about the risks to mother and the risks to babies born prematurely.

This dual-topic approach aims to provide attendees with comprehensive exposure to both subjects in our specialty. Audience participation is encouraged, and a vote for the best trainee presentation will be held at the end of the meeting.

By attending this event, you will:

  • Know how to identify factors of and diagnose endometriosis  
  • Learn the management of endometriosis, its symptoms and health effects
  • Learn the risks and management of premature birth
