APELS cultivates and promotes intensive learning culture to enhance professional competencies and improve skills in endoscopic and laparoscopic surgery in the Asia-Pacific region to meet the ever-changing challenges in today's clinical area.


In view of the escalating novel coronavirus outbreak, and as a matter of safety and precaution, it is with regret that the 8th Nurse Training Workshop (originally scheduled to be held on February 23) and 9th Lower GI (Advance) Training Course (originally scheduled to be held on April 2-3) have been postponed. At present, we are not in a position to propose a replacement date, but we will keep you duly informed when a new date is confirmed.

This was a difficult decision to make, however, health and safety are always our first consideration for all parties involved. We hope the situation will be brought under control soon.

Thank you in advance for your understanding and we look forward to welcoming you to our next event soon.
