Program Description​

The Shingo Fujii Young Doctors Summit (YDS) is a one day session held the day before the IGCS Biennial Meeting with the goal to bring together "early career" doctors worldwide for a day of education and networking. The summit was first offered in 2012 with a very generous donation from IGCS Past President, Prof. Shingo Fujii (Japan). Due to its success, the summit was offered in 2014 and is again being offered at the 2016 Biennial Meeting in Lisbon, Portugal. 

IGCS is determined to continue Prof. Fujii's vision to provide "young" doctors with this unique opportunity to network and build relat​ionships with their peers from around the globe. Registration is free and is limited to 100 delegates to maintain an intimate setting. All attendees must be registered for the 2016 Biennial Meeting unless they are selected for a travel grant; in which case meeting registration is complimentary. 

Dr. Andreas Obermair (Australia), Dr. Donal Brennan (Ireland) and Dr. Ane GZ Erikson (Norway) are the Course Directors. The full program schedule and speakers can be viewed here. ​

Register for the 2016 Young Doctors Summit. (100 seats available.)
