Letter to all PSGE 2019 Congress Announcement

Dear Colleagues,

We are celebrating an important milestone this year: PSGE on its 15th Year will host the first European Society for Gynecologic Endoscopy (ESGE) and Asia-Pacific Association for Gynecologic endoscopy (APAGE) meeting in East Asia!

Last year, I was informed by Ms. Caroline Ouch of Karl Storz that ESGE wanted to come to the Philippines. My thought back then was that one or two ESGE experts will be part of the International Faculty of our Annual Congress. Little did I know that something better would be happening as Dr. Antonia Habana, incoming Vice-President and I had our first teleconference with no less than Prof. Rudi Campo and Prof. Rudy Leon de Wilde of ESGE and Prof. Chyi-Long Lee of APAGE at the office of Karl Storz, Manila in September last year. All parties agreed to a Scientific Meeting in Manila in August this year.

With such a great collaboration, the decision to reschedule our 2019 Congress from July to August was made and approved by the Board of Trustees then. Under the leadership of Dr. Habana, Chair of the Organizing Committee, we are in for a very exciting and fruitful conference.

The PSGE website is undergoing a facelift. We hope to have it up and running by the first week of March. Detailed announcements of our forthcoming congress will be posted very soon.

See you all at the 15th Congress of the PSGE on August 16 and 17 with a Pre-Congress on August 14 and 15 on Hysteroscopy and Laparoscopy, GESEA Level 1 program, at the EDSA Shangri-La, Mandaluyong City, Metro Manila. Please find below the contact details for inquiry and registration:
