Welcome Letter

​​​​​​​​Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of IGCS President Richard Barakat, the Scientific Program Committee, the Local Organizing Committee, the Chilean Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SCHIGO), the Chilean Society of Obstetrics and Gynecology (SOCHOG), and the Officers and Council of the IGCS, it is our great pleasure to invite you to the 4th IGCS Regional Meeting on Gynecologic Cancers taking place May 10-12, 2015​​ in Santiago, one of the most attractive and beautiful cities in South America.

Santiago is Chile's capital city. The imposing Andes Mountains rise majestically around it, with their snow-capped summits and hills that slope down to the very heart of the city. Its setting in the center of a fertile valley and its pleasant Mediterranean climate make it a modern and lively city all year round. From a tourist point of view and due to its location, you are able to be on the mountains, watching the ocean or enjoying different landscapes all ​in less than a ninety-minute drive.

IGCS Regional Meetings offer collaborative state-of-the-art educational sessions, including cancer prevention, surgical techniques, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and palliative care.  Over three full days, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in lectures, tumor boards, debates, and live surgical training.

We hope that you will consider joining us in Santiago de Chile for the 4th IGCS Regional Meeting on Gynecologic Cancers, and we look forward to welcoming you in May 2015.

Dr. Raimundo Correa 
Co-Chair, Scientific Program Committee
