Dear Colleagues and Dear Residents who are the future of our profession,

The point we have come so far internationally in the field of microsurgery and hand surgery and our advances that we perform in the international area honor us and give us great hope for the future of our profession. With this gained momentum, we have profound belief in the good work yet to be done. With this purpose we have set fourth together as the Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery and the Society for Urgent Hand Surgery. We are going to organize the Congresses of these two dedicated societies in Bodrum, Hilton Türkbükü Hotel between April 23 – 26, 2020. We have intentionally organized the first day and the official opening of the Congress to be on April 23 so that we will be able to celebrate the National Independence and International Children’s Day on the 100th Anniversary of Independence Struggle.

Thanks to your contribution, we have started our work early to prepare a satisfying and rich scientific program. We have planned various conferences, panels, video sessions and experience exchange classes at which both experienced fellow academicians and up-and-coming young colleagues will take part. Apart from the conventional sessions, we have enriched the program with case-discussions and complication sessions which we believe will contribute a lot to our surgical practice. In addition to these, we will make sure that the poster sessions will get the attention they deserve by being followed by a greater audience. While our Turkish colleagues will share their vast experience with us, many international speakers will also contribute to the program. The prior target audience of the Scientific Meetings we organize is our young colleagues. Thus, our residents will be able to receive complimentary participation.

At the best time of the year, in Bodrum, besides the scientific exchanges, with the help of the delightful social program, we will be able to a short break from the stressful atmosphere we experience in our field of Microsurgery.

We invite all our colleagues to Bodrum between April 23 – 26 for a high level and satisfying congress in all terms.
