Dates: 29 April – 3 May 2020
SAMSIG will be hosting the SAMSIG 2020 meeting at the Makalali Private Game Park, near the Kruger National Park.
Makalali is well-known for combining beautiful open space game drives in the veld with viewing of the Big Five as well as other game species.
SAMSIG 2020 will follow the successful format of combining an international level musculoskeletal radiology congress with a 5- star game park experience. We hope to see you all at SAMSIG 2020.
The faculty will include international and local musculoskeletal radiologists, who will present short, to-the-point lectures on topical MSK radiology topics. Previous faculty members included Rusty Fritz, George Koulouris, John Feller, Phil Lucas and many other internationally recognised speakers. The academic program will be included once confirmed.
12 CPD points will be awarded. Lectures will be preceded by early-morning game drives, whereafter breakfast will be served. Three lecture sessions will be done on the mornings of the congress. The lectures will be followed by a leisurely lunch and the afternoons are free for other activities. Dinner is preceded by a game drive and sundowner drinks.
