   49th Annual Scientific Meeting
March 19-22, 2023



 SGS Fellows & Young Attending Course (Non-CME) 
Sunday, March 19, 2023 | 8:00 am - 12:00 pm MST

This course provides practical guidance in establishing a gynecology-based practice. Building a surgical practice with a business-minded approach requires a unique set of talents. This course is directed towards minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons and urogynecologists in both private practice and academics. Topics will be highly applicable to FMIGS and FPRMS fellows and graduates early in their professional careers. Didactic lectures will provide a set of usable, discrete tools to build the professional life you’ve aspired to obtain. We hope to also address topics that may not be covered throughout the rest of the conference. 

There is no additional fee to attend this session.
