Europe meets the World - Welcome to EBCOG 2025

Dear colleagues, 

Obstetricians and Gynaecologists from all over the world take the opportunity to meet up at the EBCOG’s European Congress of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, usually once every two years. Having moved from Torino to Paris and from Athens to Krakow, amongst many other locations over the past decades, the lovely city of Frankfurt was now decided to celebrate the 29th Edition of this reuniting meeting, one of the few still gathering nearly all branches of our specialty in a single event.

From the 5th to the 7th of June, 2025, we will follow tradition after pandemics and move for three whole days to the EBCOG Congress in order to share this special moment and learn from some of the most experienced and knowledgeable colleagues in the world.
