Introduction

Our society was founded on 30 June 1994 by a group of gynaecologists with special interest in endoscopic surgery. Currently we have more than 60 full members and 16 associate members.

We regularly organize clinical meetings, symposiums and workshops in various areas of gynaecological endoscopic surgery.

A newsletter of our society, the "Endovision" came into well-being in August 1994 and serves as a means of communication between members.

In April 1995, our society became a full member of the Federation of Medical Societies of Hong Kong. The international journal "Gynaecological Endoscopy" has become our official journal since 1995 and members are eligible for a much reduced subscription rate. Internationally, we are affiliated to the International Federation of Gynaecologic Endoscopists and the Australian Gynaecological endoscopy society since 1995. Recently we have been affiliated with the American Association of Gynecologic Laparoscopists. Locally we have association with the Society of Laparoscopic Surgeons of Hong Kong and our members are welcome to attend their clinical meetings.

A GES video library network has been set up in various public and private hospitals to provide on loan service to members.

Our society has participated actively in the drafting of guidelines on GES training anfd audits initiated by the HKCOG. Currently we are conducting an audit on the outcome of laparoscopic assisted vaginal hysterectomy.

Last but not least, our society's clinical meetings have been accredited by the HKCOG for CME program.
