About this meeting

Dear Colleagues:

Welcome to the 69th Annual Obstetrical and Gynecological Assembly of Southern California. This meeting is one of the oldest conferences in our field in Southern California, and carries great pride and prestige. Throughout its history, the meeting has evolved in keeping with the needs of clinicians and academicians in the community and continues to contribute to the education of its attendees.

The planning committee has put together an exciting and ambitious program to provide a comprehensive update on contemporary issues. Outstanding faculty have been invited based on their areas of expertise and reputation as excellent speakers. We are delighted to present you with a program of excellent local and national speakers on topics in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Women’s Health as well as three superb high-level speakers on issues surrounding Health Care Reform, which are critical to our current practice transformation. Each presentation will be followed by a dedicated questions and answers session during which we intend to open dialogue between the faculty and attendees and enhance the educational experience and enjoyment of the program. As in the past, research presentations by our trainees are a major highlight and round table luncheon discussions will be back by popular demand.

The program concentrates on Obstetrics on the first day of the meeting, and Gynecology on the second day, allowing attendees more freedom in selecting their personal areas of interest. The program syllabus will be available online for access during and following the meeting.

Due to its success, we are continuing to reserve Friday evening for the Alumni society dinner.

This conference offers an opportunity to participate in a Southern Californian tradition with an excellent update on current issues, personal access to the faculty, and fabulous exhibits. Please join us this year! We look forward to seeing you and hope that we have put together a meeting not to be missed.

Thank you for your attendance and continued support of the Assembly.
