Some of them are important because of the relevance of the society that organizes them, for example the last AAGL Global Congress in which gynecologists from all over the world meet to talk about minimally invasive surgery in the city of Las Vegas. Other meetings are organized by societies with a large number of members, as happened with the AICOG (All Indian Congress of Obstetrics and Gynecology) that was held this past January in Bengaluru. A mega congress that deals with oncology, maternal-fetal medicine, infertility, reproductive health, surgery and almost anything that has to do with gynecology. Other congresses are important for the interest and dedication of emerging societies, societies that bring together great professionals who have a common goal: to learn and improve.
Our congress has a bit of this last. If I had to answer the question what makes this congress special? I would need only two words: Passion and Friendship. The first and most important is thing is passion. There is something that we must never forget in life. We must never forget that we are doctors, that our main goal is to help. Help our patients to solve a problem, help them to conceive a pregnancy, help to improve the quality of life of those who need our help..... and also help our colleagues. We must put our passion in our work, in our training. Being a doctor is something that must be lived with passion. As Stefano said, "passion makes a difference".
The second thing is friendship. The international group of hysteroscopists is like a big family, in which friendship is always present. A group of friends who enjoy what they do, who LOVE hysteroscopy and who have fun doing their job.
The passion for what we do and the friendship that exists between us results in the magic of the Global Congress ... it can be seen all around.... you can feel it...
you can even catch it, and if you take the magic and carry it with you, you will become a great hysteroscopist and one of this little family. You will be one of us!!!!
