In these exceptional times, we are being forced to take exceptional measures. That is why we, as organizers, have decided to hold the RBSPS Autumn Meeting for the very first time in a purely virtual setting on Saturday 14 November 2020.
We hope to seduce you with a versatile program with a feminine touch: the topics that captivate us three the most within paediatric, reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery will certainly be covered by fascinating, renowned keynote speakers, what makes us very excited!
As female plastic surgeons, we are in a good position to know that women have different experiences than men during their training, and there is still a lack of same-sex mentors and role models for women in academic surgery. A survey has been drawn up, the results of which will be discussed during the session on gender bias in plastic surgery.
Feel free to take a look at the preliminary program.
Of course, we understand that our biennial meetings are also important times for you to get in contact with your colleagues and some firms’ representatives at our events. We have foreseen this as well: on our platform it will not only be possible to have a private conversation (via chat or video), or in group, with present colleagues of your choice, and you will also be able to visit our sponsors in the virtual exhibition. There, you can either find information or request a meeting with the representative present. In addition, just as in our live events, a tombola with a prize will be organized for the participants who most actively participate in our virtual event and pay a visit to the virtual exhibition booths.
