South Western Obstetrical & Gynaecological Society Meeting
Frogmill Hotel. SWOGS Meeting

Call For Abstracts

Call for Abstracts Submission Deadline: 6 pm on 1st August 2011

The SWOGS 2011 Committee would like to encourage the submission of abstracts for presentation from trainees and consultants in Obstetrics and Gynaecology from the South West region.

As well as oral presentations, we will also be aiming for a Poster Exhibition, to further profile material submitted in a prominent place within our venue.

There will be a prize for the best oral and poster presentations at the Meeting.

Abstracts are an excellent opportunity to present interesting work to your colleagues. Abstracts may be by way of an original paper/trial, audit, case study or a professional experience. Oral presentations will be around 10 minutes in length to allow adequate time for questions.

We have aimed to keep the Abstract Submission process as simple as possible – so if you have not previously submitted an abstract, now is your opportunity!
