The RACS Annual Scientific Congress (ASC) 2024 will be held at the Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre, from Monday 6 to Friday 10 May.

We look forward to welcoming you to Christchurch as we haven’t been back to the lovely town since 2007.

The RACS ASC promises to be a convergence of brilliant minds — fostering an environment where innovation, collaboration and scientific excellence thrive. Join us in the Garden City for an experience that transcends raising surgical knowledge to new heights.

Prepare to immerse yourself in a sea of knowledge, as distinguished speakers and experts from various surgical disciplines share their insights and latest research. From minimally invasive techniques to robotic surgery, the ASC encompasses a diverse range of topics, ensuring relevance for surgeons and teams across multiple disciplines.

Surgery, in its evolution, has become increasingly interdisciplinary and the ASC provides a perfect platform to explore collaborations with experts and like-minded colleagues from different medical fields for the betterment of patient care. Continuous collaboration and research can lead to groundbreaking technologies and innovative solutions to complex surgical challenges.

While the focus is undeniably on surgical advancement, it is also a transformative experience for you to forge new connections and catch up with old friends. One of the greatest advantages of attending the RACS ASC lies in the networking opportunities it affords. Share your experiences, exchange ideas, and forge collaborations that can shape the future of surgery.

Christchurch and the congress venue, Te Pae Christchurch Convention Centre, are surrounded by the serene beauty of Aotearoa New Zealand’s landscapes; it's a great spot to rejuvenate your mind, ensuring you return to your practice with renewed vigor.
