Important announcement regarding the postponement of EURAPAG 2020

Dear colleagues and friends,

Faced with the global Covid-19 pan-epidemic and the need to safeguard the health of our presenters, attendees and sponsors along with the travel restrictions imposed on us all, it is with great regret that the EURAPAG 2020 local organizing committee and the EURAPAG Board have decided to postpone the 15th EURAPAG Congress, including the 2nd Pan-European Trainees’ Congress, to Spring 2021, when we plan a bigger celebration of PAG and a return to normality.

In the past few days, we have been working hard towards re-organizing our events. We are glad to confirm the new dates of the congress and 2nd Pan European Trainees’ Congress, which will now be held from Wednesday 9 – Saturday 12 June 2021. The venue of the meeting, the Hilton Hotel in Rotterdam, will remain unaltered.

Other details and concrete information will be shared on our website www.eurapag2021.eu as soon as this is available. Should any questions or concerns regarding this information remain, please do not hesitate to contact the congress secretariat by e-mail, info@eurapag2020.eu.

Thank you for your understanding and for your continued support to the congress.

We wish you all remain in good health and look forward to seeing you next year in Rotterdam.

Warm regards,

Evelien Roos, MD
Congress President
&
Paul Wood, MD
EURAPAG President

Dear Friends in PAG!

Your Board has been busy over the last 12 months and EURAPAG can be proud of the wonderful success of our first Trainees’ Congress held so expertly and efficiently in Frankfurt earlier this year with over 100 attendees from more than 20 countries.

Other than for promoting PAG in the medical literature and text books, EURAPAG has also been involved in the creation of a new curriculum in Obstetrics and Gynaecology published by the European Board of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (EBCOG).

We were pleased to be able to provide input and ensure that PAG had a place within the curriculum which has now been approved by the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).

Attached is an brief introductory video clip to help introduce the new curriculum which is accessible via the EBCOG website (ebcog.org).

Please feel free to share the content in order to promote knowledge and understanding of the new curriculum.

I am also delighted to advise EURAPAG that on the back of this general curriculum we have only just recently finalised a specific European-wide curriculum for PAG as a joint venture with EBCOG.

This is a particularly exciting development, and you shall hear more about this at the next EURAPAG Congress in Rotterdam which I would encourage you all to attend and which promises to be an exciting and comprehensive event for which much work has already been done.

Best wishes

Paul Wood
President EURAPAG

Season’s Greetings
