Scientific and a Family Oriented Affair

Our midyear convention as we all know is both a scientific and a family oriented affair. Therefore the organizing committee is working very hard to  come up again a meeting full of educational and informative lectures, thrill and excitement because of several sports activities prepared for our fellow urologists, residents and family members as well.

The theme for this year’s midyear convention is “Functional and Female Urology in the practice of a General Urologist. We have invited both  foreign and local lecturers to discuss topics in their field of expertise that are relevant to this year’s concept. Some other highlights include non- urologic topics to brighten the mood of discussion as we have invited lecturers on different topics such as  cryptocurrency, improving skills in communication, hackproofing and medical entrepreneurship.

Kindly mark your calendar for this long awaited face to face meeting  and looking forward of seeing you all with your families. Let’s enjoy once again!
