20ME003 - Southern Obstetric and Gynecologic Seminar Annual Meeting




In its 65th season, the Southern Obstetric and Gynecologic Seminar is a three-day educational event designed to address relevant and timely topics in women’s health for the busy provider. Distinguished lecturers and leading experts in the field of obstetrics and gynecology will present clinical best-practices and care recommendations that the provider can easily implement to improve patient care and outcomes. The content covered in this year’s conference was derived from assessing the information needs and educational gaps reported by Southern’s physician membership. Information will be delivered through a series of four lectures each day, case-studies, as well as question and answer sessions.

Accompanying the academic portion of the annual meeting, Southern’s members value the opportunity to interact socially with longstanding and new members. This year Southern returns to the Biltmore Estate-George W. Vanderbilt's summer house.
