Conferences & seminars
A range of conferences and seminars on women's health are run by the Women's throughout the year.
The Women's believes it has a responsibility, as a specialist hospital, to provide information and education on women's health to health professionals across Victoria to help support the state's health system. To that end, we organise and convene a range of conferences, seminars and symposia for health professionals.
