AICOG is a great opportunity for Obstetricians and Gynaecologists all around the world to share the most updated information in different fields of this speciality.

The conference aims to disseminate recently acquired scientific knowledge and skills as well as to provide a platform to ruminate on controversies. We need to ensure that such knowledge and discussions bear fruits by actually being put in practice in treating women.

Patna, the capital of modern Bihar and the erstwhile city of Pataliputra of ancient India, historically justifies being the host venue for this academic bonanza. After all, this is where the erudite legion like Aryabhatta, Chanakya,Vatsyayan, Panini and other scholars penned their ideas for which we remember them even today. Bihar is sprinkled with a host of heritage sites which speak volumes of its rulers and eminent citizens of the past. Vaishali, Bodh Gaya and Pawapuri etc. are a few examples of such places.
