Greetings from your Virtual Organizing Chair

Dear Colleagues

Welcome to the 54th Annual Scientific Meeting of the Pacific Association of Pediatric Surgeons. Once again, we have a challenging year with the COVID-19 crisis impacting us in so many ways including how we share information. This year's meeting cannot be held in Tainan nor do we anticipate travel possible for most of our colleagues. Therefore, we have decided to go VIRTUAL again! The dates will stay the same, specifically November 14th to the 18th depending on where you are in the world. The meeting will be educational and informative with some fun surprises mixed in. Please submit your abstract through the link below. Abstracts accepted for oral presentation will be encouraged to submit a manuscript for publication in the Journal of Pediatric Surgery. 



More details will be published on this website soon and we will be contacting presenters directly with instructions. Thanks for joining us virtually!

  • John Meehan, MD FACS
  • PAPS 2021 Program Chair

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.
