NEW this year: In addition to the BC Surgical Annual Spring Meeting, we are able to offer the option of a hands-on skills workshop in oncoplastic breast surgery on Thursday, May 4 just before the start of the annual meeting. This course will have limited enrollment and be taught by The Oncoplastic Partnership Workshop who have been running oncoplastic workshops in Canada since 2016.  More information is available on the Oncoplastic Partnership website and the registration link will be posted here and distributed via email once activated.

EXHIBITORS: Your financial support has allowed us to expand our education program and bring in high profile keynote speakers to this event. Once again, the Society will be providing prizes for participants who visit each exhibitor booth and have their ‘exhibit passport’ stamped.

The Exhibit room will be open to those exhibitors who wish to participate during the Oncoplastic Workshop on Thursday, May 4th, for an additional fee. See exhibit prospectus details in the link below.

Interested Exhibitors should complete this form by Friday, March 3rd, 2023.
