International Facial Gender Symposium
The next annual International Facial Gender Symposium (IFGS) will take place June 5th – 6th, 2020 in Baltimore, USA . This groundbreaking educational symposium is designed to address the lack of structured academic programs addressing this emerging field of craniofacial plastic surgery.
IFGS is an immersive 2 day program, with lectures, discussion panels, Q&A sessions, and an all-day cadaver lab. It is hosted by the Center for Transgender Health of the prestigious Johns Hopkins Hospital in collaboration with FACIALTEAM Training & Education. In addition, professional networking takes place after the didactic session to encourage thoughtful discussion and innovation in the field. Invited expert speakers of leading academic programs and specialists in gender affirming facial surgery from around the world are featured each year.
Who may attend the International Facial Gender Symposium?
Specialists in oral and maxillofacial surgery, reconstructive and plastic surgery, ENT surgeons and any healthcare professional with experience working in the field of gender identity are welcome.
