Postponement of Regional Fellows Scientific Meeting

14 February 2021

After careful consideration, RANZCOG has made the difficult decision to postpone the RANZCOG 2021 Regional Fellows Scientific Meeting (the entire event, including the scientific meeting, all workshops and social functions) which was scheduled to take place from 7 - 10 April 2021, in Darwin, NT. This is in recognition of potential risks to the wider community stemming from the coronavirus (COVID-19) (including both the O&G community, as well as vulnerable populations served by many of the delegates) as well as the uncertainty around interstate border closures.

The decision to postpone the event was not taken lightly, however at this time, of utmost importance is the impact that COVID-19 may have on the medical workforce in Australia and New Zealand and the communities they serve.

The health, safety and wellbeing of every individual, including our attendees, was paramount in reaching the decision.

Notice regarding the postponement of this meeting has been posted on the event website.

Efforts will now focus on rescheduling the RSM to a later date (April 2022).

We appreciate your understanding and patience, at this time, as the fluidity of the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve. The health and safety of our members, trainees, staff and the public is our priority.
