Sidra Medicine to host Third Annual Clinical Updates in Obstetrics and Gynecology Conference


Qatar Foundation institution brings latest guidelines and best practice techniques to Qatar

Doha, Qatar, 11 December 2018: Sidra Medicine’s Women’s Clinical Management Group will host its third annual event, this year focusing on obstetrics and gynecology. The Clinical Updates in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CUOG) conference is set to share the latest research and guidelines with peers in Qatar from 14-15 December 2018 at the Sidra Medicine main hospital building.

The Women’s Clinical Management Group at Sidra Medicine, which oversaw the development of content for the conference, provides mothers facing complex medical conditions access to world-class maternal and fetal care, obstetrics and reproductive medicine, as well as gynecology. Constantly keeping abreast with the latest global state-of-the-art healthcare technology and best practice techniques, the Sidra Medicine team has set up the CUOG 2018 conference as part of its mission to build a robust and collaborative healthcare ecosystem in the country. As an academic teaching hospital, Sidra Medicine is committed to playing a key role in providing quality education and training to medical professionals in Qatar.

Prof. Justin Konje, Executive Chair of the Women's Services Clinical Management Group, said: “The practice of obsetrics and gynecology continues to change in response to advances in technology and the unveiling of new evidence. These advances are varied, often subtle and can be challenging to keep pace with. The conference will feature evidence-based presentations and debates by leading clinicians and academics from Qatar, the U.S. and Europe. It will be an interactive educational platform and we are eager to engage with our friends and colleagues at Sidra Medicine in just a few days.”
