Key Information

  • Conference Profile

    This first ISGE—CAGES International Gynaecological Endoscopic Conference aims to be a landmark conference which will showcase Jamaica as an ideal destination for hosting International Medical Conferences, therefore launching this new perspective in medical tourism, and Jamaica as a convention destination.

    We aim to utilize the emerging medical learning strategy of case-based learning in the sharing of new surgical techniques and ways to improve patient care and safety. We expect to attract attendees from North America, Canada, Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, and Europe, as well as to inspire the international societies of multiple specialities to include Jamaica as a destination for their annual conferences.
