ESS in collaboration with ISS/SIC

ESS International
Surgical Week

Live Webinars
16-19 June, 2020


Dear Friends and Colleagues

For almost 38 years, ESS members, National & International Surgeons from all over the world gathered in person to share the latest clinical researches & professional insights about Surgery, but due to the spread of COVID-19 this year, ESS Board members decided to go virtual for the first time in its history.

The decision is in the first place for the safety & well-being of the attendees because in this crisis doctors of all medical specialties are on the frontline, and as education never stops no matter what, the webinar was an optimum choice to conduct our Annual Meeting under the theme “ESS International Surgical Week” that will take place from 16-19 June 2020.

As usual, ESS is keen on providing valuables expertise to the attendants thus the scientific content will be in collaboration with the International Society of Surgery (ISS) & accredited by the American Association of Continuing Medical Education (AACME).

Join our experts and don’t miss the chance!
