The 37th Annual Meeting of the Australasian Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery will be in Hobart this year at the Grand Chancellor Hotel July 29 – August 2
.Registration is now closed for the 37th Annual ASAPS Conference
Hobart is a city of beautiful architecture with a long history initially as a British Penal Colony and early colonial outpost. Contemporary Hobart is known for its wineries, local produce and food, MONA (The Museum of Old and New Art), bushwalking, and is the Australian base of our Antarctic Fleet. Tasmania is also a mecca for fishing.
This meeting will be different from Port Douglas in 2013. Last year was focused on the face and genitourinary plastic surgery, this year we will focus on the breast, general aesthetics and also the business of plastic surgery.
Instead of the family focus last year, we will have a more adult and business feel. As such the meeting is out of school holidays and the social events are age appropriate. The Production House Events will again coordinate the meeting with Suzane Ali and we have all come to expect outstanding social events and seemless organisation associated with this combination.
The clinical sessions will include a return to increased local content and a greatly expanded practice management element, in keeping with a business focus both as separate interactive sessions and combined with the plenaries.
|We have 4 international speakers, two of which will present online.
There is a vast amount of experience and knowledge hidden within our practices. I will be reaching out to encourage everyone to consider submitting a paper and presenting at the meeting. After an entertaining and dynamic introduction in Port Douglas, I will include the Petcha Kutcha format again in our Short Talks on Cosmetic Surgery (SToCS) session. 20 slides in 20 second autoforward (6 mins 40 second duration).
There are 2 straightforward formats that can be utilised for those uncertain how to start presenting:
The extensive practice management sessions will cover two session in the plenaries
Independent interactive sessions for practice staff:
One day prior to the Conference, there will be a half day Clinical Photography Masterclass which will cover the techniques, technology and procedures of effective practice photography. Followed by a recreational workshop in Hobart with the latest Nikon cameras and lenses hosted by Nikon Australia lecturer Woodrow Wilson.
I hope you all take advantage of the strong practice management program and bring your staff.
I look forward to welcoming you to Hobart in July.
