Welcome to the European Federation For Colposcopy's Official Webite

Due to the unforeseen cancellation of the 7th EFC Congress in Istanbul, the EFC Executive Board has decided to organise a one day Symposium in Paris on 11th January 2017, the day before the annual meeting of the French Society for Colposcopy. The format of this meeting will be a symposium to produce EFC Recommendations for Education, Training and Practice. The recommendations will be ratified at the General Assembly which will be held on the same day between 13.00 - 14.30 hours. At the General Assembly, the EFC will also elect new Officers for 2017-2019, and will invite bids from Member Countries who would like to host the 9th Congress of the European Federation for Colposcopy & Cervical Pathology in 2022.

The programme of the event is available here.

Registration to the event will be online soon.
