On the 3rd of February I was lucky enough to be selected to present an abstract at the Australasian Gynaecological Endoscopy and Surgery Society annual meeting. The abstract I presented was a part of my MD project titled 'Ultrasound Based Endometriosis Staging System (UBESS) to predict complexity of laparoscopic surgery using AGES laparoscopic skill levels'.

I was the last to present in my category and was understandably a little nervous. Thankfully my MD research supervisor and team were there and were incredibly supportive of me. Overall the conference was a fantastic experience professionally as well as a great learning opportunity.

I would like to thank Associate Professor Condous and his team for their support and guidance as well as the Nepean Clinical School.
