During such an event, a set of 3-5 doctors specialized in the same surgical area, but with different experiences, will answer questions pertaining to a specific aspect of their practice. It is an interactive event which aims to present scientific information in a way that is different from the conventional conferences, as it gives the opportunity to find out distinct professional opinions on the same subject and it also allows participants to directly ask their own questions.

The purpose of the event is for each one of them to share their personal expertise and advice for students with an interest in a surgical technique. The structure of the event will be presented by a moderator who will also ensure a balanced discussion and at the end will be addressing the questions from the participants. Each doctor will have a short presentation of 5-10 minutes and at the end 10-15 minutes will be reserved for questions and remarks between the panelists and from the audience. The duration of this event is 60-90 minutes.

Theme: Pediatric Surgery - current state-of-the-art and future prospects

Pediatric Surgery is a vast specialty with various pathologies including abdominal, uro-genital and thoracic surgery in patients under the age of 18. It requires great experience and special care as it can have life-lasting consequences on a child’s development and life in general. Therefore, in order to ensure the best care, there is a need for continuous education, research and exchange of ideas, as we are trying to promote through our premiere event - Panel Discussion. This event will reunite pediatric surgeons with special interests in Urology, Thoracic Surgery, Abdominal Surgery and Pediatric Gynecology, in order to ensure a balanced and complex view of this specialty for our participants.
