Onwards & Upwards

Crown Promenade, Melbourne
3rd - 5th November 2022


We look forward to the AGES Annual Scientific Meeting 2022, as COVID-19 is being increasingly diminished from our day-to-day lives. This will be our time to reunite, reconnect and re-establish the impetus within us to march onwards and upwards towards enriching gynaecological care for the women of Australasia.

The AGES 2022 ASM theme “Onwards and Upwards” is very apt in the current climate, focusing on our determination and resilience to progress forward despite the complex challenges brought upon all of us over the last few years by COVID-19. AGES will continue to move onwards in the provision of ongoing education to our members on “core” surgical topics of relevance to trainees, generalist consultants, and advanced laparoscopists alike. As a dynamic society, we move upwards as we push past the boundaries with presentations on new developments and advanced surgical themes to equip you with the motivation, tools, and skills to aim for an accelerated post-pandemic recovery. As always, the AGES 2022 ASM will offer the best of live surgery, core-learning sessions, surgical videos, and panel discussions presented by outstanding international and local guest speakers.

We cannot think of a better place to host the AGES 2022 ASM than Melbourne, given the severe impact of COVID-19 on this proud city. Melbourne has withstood and conquered multiple COVID-19 outbreaks, despite the profound challenges, by harnessing the strength and courage within its own community.

The AGES board and local organising committee are delighted to invite you to the AGES 2022 ASM, ‘Onwards and Upwards’. For so many reasons, this will be an AGES ASM like no other!
