Dear Esteemed Colleagues and Friends,
It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 2023 Singapore International Congress of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (SICOG). This congress was first organised by the Obstetrics and Gynaecological Society Singapore (OGSS) in 2005, and had even taken on a virtual mode during the COVID pandemic in 2021. This year, the 12th edition of SICOG will be held from 25th to 27th August 2023 at Grand Copthorne Waterfront Hotel Singapore.
Our theme for the 2023 congress is “Unlocking The Future of Women’s Health”. The past decade has seen unprecedented achievements and advances in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, and the next decade will likely see even greater advances at exponential rates. As healthcare providers, we have a vital role in shaping the future of women’s health, and to do that, we need to continually keep abreast of the latest developments in this area. The congress brings together the brightest minds in the field of Obstetrics and Gynaecology and its subspecialties (e.g. Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Benign Gynaecology, Reproductive Medicine, Gynaecological Oncology etc) to discuss the latest advancements and share knowledge and best practices. We welcome OBGYN specialists and trainees, allied health professionals, nurses, and medical students to our congress - the wide repertoire of topics in our programme allows for tailoring to each individual’s interest. This congress will therefore provide an opportunity for all participants to come together to discuss the latest research and advancements, exchange ideas and knowledge, explore innovative solutions to improve the health and wellbeing of women around the world, as well as build lasting relationships with fellow professionals.
We sincerely hope that you will be able to join us in the beautiful city of Singapore and all that she has to offer. With a rich blend of modernity and cultural heritage, our garden city offers a unique and enriching experience for all visitors, supported by excellent infrastructure, an efficient transport system and a wide range of accommodations. Singapore’s food scene is widely known to be exceptional, featuring a diverse array of cuisines that cater to different dietary needs. Do take the opportunity to try some of our Singaporean delicacies such as the Singapore chilli crabs and popular hawker fares such as Hainanese chicken rice and laksa.
In addition to our vibrant food culture, Singapore also offers an abundance of entertainment and leisure options ranging from world-class shopping to cultural and nature-based activities. Visitors can have the opportunity to experience the beauty of Singapore’s iconic landmarks such as Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands, the Singapore Zoo or Night Safari and the Merlion, amongst many other local galleries, museums and historical worship sites.
We look forward to meeting you all in Singapore in August 2023 for a time of great sharing and collaboration. Till then, take care and stay safe!
