The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists brings its Annual Clinical Meeting back to San Francisco's Moscone Convention Center for 2005.

The City by the Bay has long been one of ACOGs's most popular venues, said president Vivian Dickerson, MD, in her official welcome message on the College's Web site. The 2005 clinical meeting is no exception.

The nation's largest scientific conference for ob-gyns and other women's health-care providers features several new programs for 2005 as well as return engagements for familiar favorites. The opening President's Program kicked off the official events at 8:30 this morning, but the meeting really began on Saturday with the first of four hands-on postgraduate courses, up from two courses in 2004. ACOG 2005 comes to a close with a final round of postgrad courses ending at 3:50 pm on Wednesday.

Returning favorites include live telesurgery sessions on Tuesday. Three different procedures will be performed this year, a laparoscopic myomectomy, laparoscopic hysterectomy, and a hysteroscopic myomectomy, all shown from remote locations.

ACM attendees can also choose from four current issues updates, nine scientific sessions, 75 luncheon conferences, dozens of clinical seminars, three full days of poster sessions, and one of the largest exhibitor rosters ACOG has ever offered. Don't forget to stop by the Contemporary Ob/Gyn booth #1818.
