Morning Half Day

Date: Wednesday, 27 November 2019

Venue: O&G Seminar room, H floor, Old Main Building, Groote Schuur Hospital

The lower genital tract is an often-neglected field in Gynecology. This half day workshop aims to empower attendees with awareness, recognition, diagnosis and management of pathology of the vulva, vagina, cervix and peri-anal area. Colposcopic evaluation will also be covered in detail as a session. The program is led by experts in the lower genital tract disease. All members are accredited by the International Federation of Cervical Pathology and Colposcopy (IFCPC) for colposcopic training. Dr Ros Boa is also an accredited Sexual Medicine Practitioner by the European Society of Sexual Medicine [ESSM] and she will provide insight on the impact of lower genital tract pathology and sexuality.
