27TH WITS BIENNIAL VIRTUAL SURGICAL SYMPOSIUM
Jul 3 - Jul 5
After consideration and examination of the evidence as we currently understand it, the Wits Department of Surgery
has decided that the Biennial will be delivered online, as a Virtual Congress from 3-5 July 2020.
We believe that this will become part of the “new normal” in our immediate future and want to be part of the development
of this process, as the oldest Departmental based Surgical meeting in South Africa. This meeting is about delivering the
program online, while preserving the interaction in real time with the speakers. Our decision to continue in July, albeit on
a different platform, is because we want to continue with our endeavour to share knowledge, share education, expertise
and experiences in Surgery, now more than ever.
We have lowered the registration rates very substantially for all attendees, and this would not be possible at all, without
the support and commitment from our Trade Partners which we will acknowledge individually in our next update to you.
We look forward to this event, and your support
The academic program is on the website.
