The 56th Annual PAPS meeting is September 10-14 in Bali Indonesia. Abstract submission OPENS in April 2023!

Paradise, Found

If the weather where you live has given you the blues and your soul is aching for a bit of sunshine, a trip to Bali will do the trick: with an average of 12 to 13 hours of sunshine a day, the prescription of sun, sea, and sand will set things right. From island-hopping by private speedboat to snorkeling in crystal-clear waters amongst turtles, coral reefs, and manta rays, to private beachside yoga lessons, a vacation in Bali could be the ultimate cure for what ails you. Oh, and there's a great pediatric surgery meeting is there too. Abstracts accepted for full oral presentation are invited to submit a manuscript for publication in the PAPS issue of the Journal of Pediatric Surgery! Come see why the Pacific Association of Pediatric Surgeons is the best and most friendliest surgical society in the world!

The PAPS 2023 meeting is IN-PERSON only. No virtual or hybrid option is available. See you in the beautiful island of Bali!

About Us

PAPS is one of the largest pediatric surgery associations in the world but quite unique with an uplifting and fun sense of family between all members and guests. We are much more relaxed than any other surgical society. We don't even allow neckties at any PAPS meeting....wear one and it will be quickly cut off!

Join PAPS to share ideas and meet great new friends.
