Welcome Message

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the organising committee, it is our pleasure to welcome you to the SingHealth Duke-NUS Surgical & Anaesthesia Congress 2019 at Academia, SGH Campus.

Building on the success of the Surgical & Anaesthesia Congress in 2017, which attracted more than 1000 doctors, nurses and allied health professionals, the 2019 Congress is an excellent platform for delegates to engage in a vibrant and multidisciplinary exchange of knowledge, ideas, experiences and best practices in surgery and clinical management.

This year’s theme ‘Global Surgery, Global Partnerships’ will explore a broad range of topics related to surgery across borders such as capacity-building, collaborations and partnerships as well as strategic policies and processes. The two-day programme will include plenary lectures, panel dialogues and multidisciplinary symposiums. A series of surgical workshops will be conducted in the days leading up to and after the Main Congress. You can also play a part by submitting your research abstracts under the respective tracks.

We are honoured to have highly esteemed local and international speakers, who are thought leaders and trailblazers in their respective fields. The aim is to encourage discourse on the roles that individuals, groups and organisations can play in global surgery.

We look forward to a fruitful and inspiring exchange of ideas. See you at the Congress in September 2019!
