Due to the current impact of the Corona Virus (COVID-19), the 4th Annual Scientific Conference planned for June 2020 in Kumasi has unfortunately been cancelled.

Meeting Cancelled !


The fourth meeting of the Anatomical Society of Ghana is being hosted by the Department of Anatomy, School of Medicine and Dentistry, KNUST from the 25th to 28th June 2020 with the theme “Building Capacity to Train The Next Generation of Human Anatomists for Africa”. During the meeting, there will be oral and poster presentations, the ASoG Prize Competition, an AGM of the Society, and an Education Discussion Session.  The majority of the meeting, including the Education Discussion Session will be in the IDL Conference Building, with other events such as poster display and trade exhibits being in adjacent areas. 

Accommodation will be in the GUSS Complex Building/International Programmes Building/KCCR Guest House/Engineering Guest House which are situated a short distance from the IDL Conference Building and comprises either standard single rooms or en suite single rooms. For those wishing to make alternative accommodation arrangements within Kumasi a list of hotels and their tariffs will be forwarded on request: delegates will however have to make arrangements directly with the hotels. The conference dinner on Saturday 27th June 2020 will be in the New Pharmacy Building, College of Health Sciences, KNUST, which again is near both the meeting venue and the guest houses.

The School of Medicine and Dentistry, KNUST has recently been formed by the coming together of the former School of Medical Sciences and the KNUST Dental School and is housed mainly in the Laing Complex adjacent to the Departments of Biological Sciences and Chemistry, College of Science, KNUST. In total, the faculty comprises about 170 academic staff in various disciplines. The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology is situated close to the center of the city and is one of the largest single-site campuses in the country with about 55,000 students. KNUST is readily accessible by road and air.  The University buildings show a mixture of architectural styles testifying to its history as well as to its post-1960s expansion. The University is within a comfortable distance of the city center with its many shops, theatres, and restaurants. We look forward to welcoming you to Kumasi in June 2020.
