Prato Masterclass in Gynaecology
UPDATE: The Masterclass in Gynaecology has been postponed to 2021. We will announce the new dates later this year.
We are aware of the uncertainty around travel arrangements and health concerns due to COVID-19. At the moment, we are still hoping to go ahead with this Masterclass as planned in Prato, Italy (14 & 15 September 2020).
We are constantly monitoring this situation and changing circumstances, such government and institutional travel advice and restrictions, could force us to reconsider this decision.
This website will be updated regularly and the full program is available on the flyer. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns at email@example.com.
Our thoughts are very much with our colleagues in Italy at the moment.
