It was August 30th 2011 when the first WAOCS Board review course started. Over 20 registrants made the board review course more successful than ever expected. All participants are invited to the board exam in December 2011. On Thursday, September 1st, the 2nd annual scientific meeting in Vienna hotel Marriott started.
After the press conference at 13:00h, the meeting started on time. One highlight was the presentation of the Karl Koller Award to Jeffrey Klein, MD for his outstanding contribution in the field of local anesthesia. An approximately 40cm high sculpture made out of crystal glas cubes and pure gold.
A worldwide weel-known and famous faculty presented over 80 interesting facts, news and improvements in the field of cosmetic surgery. The lecture hall was full because of more than 120 participants from all over the world, which is also a new record for the WAOCS. We would like to thank all faculty members and participants and look forward to a promising future.
Please stay tuned. In the next days we will publish some important updates concerning the board exam and some new WAOCS events. We also updated our website and start with a community for our members only. You can share photos, videos and start interesting discussions. This makes sence for a better global communication through the WAOCS online plattform.
