Dear colleagues and participants, We take this opportunity to invite you to the 27th congress of The Association of Paediatric Surgeons of Pakistan (APSP) and 8th congress of Federation of Associations of Pediatric Surgeons of SAARC Countries (FAPSS) 2019.The theme of the congress “innovations and technical advancements in paediatric surgery-where do we stand” was selected with the desire of bridging the gap in the highest technological advances in the field of pediatric surgery between the developed and the developing countries.
We hope to present a well-balanced educational curriculum both scientifically and practically, featuring state of the art innovations, discussions and presentations on the core components of Pediatric Surgery. A galaxy of eminent national and international speakers would share their experience with the participants offering highly valuable education to pediatric surgeons, surgical trainees, and surgical nurses. The key feature of the program includes a hands on training workshop on laparoscopic surgery in collaboration with BAPS.
It is anticipated that a large number of trainees, residents, pediatricians, pediatric surgeons, pediatric subspecialties, educators, nurses and allied health professionals will participate in this symposium.
We look forward to the participation of all APSP members and FAPSS members from neighboring SAARC countries, as there would be ample opportunities for networking, collaboration, and sharing of ideas, techniques and tools.
With the charm of Lahore “The city of living hearts” in the back drop we promise you all a rich cultural program combining old with the new. We look forward welcoming you to the historic city of Lahore.
