The SIU is watching the quickly-evolving situation with COVID-19 and wishes to send its support and best wishes to all those affected by this pandemic. At present time, there are no plans to alter the planning for SIU 2020 in Montreal, scheduled for October 7-11. We will continue to monitor all updates & recommendations from the WHO and other global health agencies. Message from SIU President.
We hope everyone is staying safe in these turbulent times. We want to provide you with an update on SIU 2020, including a message from SIU’s President on COVID-19 and notice of abstract deadline extension.
A variety of eLearning programmes are available on SIU Academy, including a recently-launched Residents’ Corner, several CME-accredited programmes and surgical demonstration videos. Accessible any time, any where, we are hopeful that the SIU Academy platform can make a positive difference for those experiencing disruption in education and training. More content has been made available Open Access until August 1.
