Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions

Should I attend the World Congress or the International Vulvovaginal Disease Update or both?

All women’s health providers are welcome to attend either one or both excellent scientific sessions. The postgraduate course is taught by world renowned leading experts in the various specialties of vulvovaginal disease and is a more educational format. The World Congress offers a unique opportunity to hear the most recent updates and advances in the field, as well as the scientific abstracts of our members, fellows, and candidates for fellowship. There are also social events incorporated into the event to foster a feeling of fellowship, collaboration, and networking opportunities.

What if I can't make the LIVE event? All registered attendees will also have access to the online content. You can participate in the hybrid event (Streamed live event) and watch the sessions at your convenience as many times as you want through the end of 2022.
