A message from the convenors

Dear Trainee,

We warmly invite you to join us in Sydney for the 11th annual AGES/RANZCOG Trainee Workshop. The RANZCOG training program mandates that trainees be able to perform to a level 3 laparoscopic surgery at the completion of membership, which includes a laparoscopic ovarian cystectomy/ oophorectomy and an ectopic pregnancy when the anatomy is not significantly distorted. This program has been established to facilitate the acquisition of skills that are required to perform these procedures. In 2015, we have assembled an exhaustive program, incorporating both didactic and practical components, with direct interaction with our national faculty. Please book early as places are limited. We look forward to welcoming you in Sydney for an exciting two days.
