We take great pleasure to invite you to the 27th annual conference of the Association of Gynaecologic Oncologists of India (AGOI), which will be held at Christian Medical College and Hospital, Vellore, from 14th to the 16th of November, 2019.
The AGOI is a multidisciplinary professional society with expertise in the fields of medical, radiation and surgical oncology, oncopathology, preventive medicine and research. We can expect a brilliant scientific feast this year with contribution from both young and old, with faculty from India and around the world.
The theme of the conference will be “Controversies and Convictions”.
There will be pre-conference workshops on epidemiological research methods, cadaveric lab, genetics, preventive oncology, onconursing and surgical videos. The main conference will have research presentations, didactic lectures, debates and panel discussions. This year we propose to have a tumour board competition incorporating counselling and communication. The best free paper presentations, poster and videos will be awarded prizes. A separate competition for YGOG members will be held as usual. We hope to have over 250 delegates who can interact with each other as well as members from the health industry who will be exhibiting their products.
Christian Medical College and hospital (CMC), Vellore was started in 1900 by Dr. Ida Sophia Scudder, a Christian missionary with a strong desire “not to be served, but to serve”. Since then, for more than a century, CMC has served the nation through excellence in education, research and patient service. The ancient city of Vellore is now considered a medical and technological destination in India. The Vellore region is the top exporter of finished leather goods in the country and is strategically close to Kanchipuram, Mahabalipuram, Pondichery and Tirupathi .
So, we invite you to plan early and block your dates for the upcoming, much awaited conference. Looking forward to seeing you in Vellore.
