50th Anniversary Meeting

APSA 50th Anniversary Meeting


We’re excited about all the plans we have to celebrate APSA’s 50th Anniversary – our achievements, our history and what lies ahead. Mark your calendar now to join the pediatric surgery community in Boston, Massachusetts; this is an event you won’t want to miss! 

You can look forward to expanded educational opportunities including: more scientific and educational sessions, TEC (top educational content) talks, Quick Shots, TED-type talks, a debate session, a diversity lecture and more. See your colleagues’ artistry during a visual arts exhibition and musical performances by APSA members.

The APSA Annual Meeting is still the forum for discussions on the current and future state of pediatric surgery and an opportunity to share your work with experts in the field, create new collaborations and stay up to date on advances and trends.
