Medical specialty conferences provide a physical medium for expert physicians to impart their knowledge and experience to junior colleagues and trainees. Through lectures, panel discussions, and hands-on training labs, the masters assist the young surgeon to fast-track the development of their clinical and surgical skills. Likewise, it also provides young physicians with the medium to share their research and academic work, which ultimately leads to innovation and pushes the field forward.
Conferences also allow industry sponsorship, and in return, industry is able to showcase the latest medical technologies and innovations. Industry presence provides a platform for the simulation of technical intervention, particularly in surgery and in interventional medicine.
