Welcome Message

We are pleased to invite you to the ISHRS 28th World Congress which will now take place in a virtual format. As the field of Hair Transplantation Surgery continues to evolve, we invite you to join us to discuss and learn about new findings, new research, new techniques, new pearls and ideas. We foster an intellectual, collegial, respectful, and stimulating environment. Join us – share your experiences and learn from your peers!

As we transition to a virtual meeting format, we have spread our content over nine days, with a well-designed schedule so you will be able to attend more sessions and workshops than usual, and keep up with your normal work schedule and home life. Sessions will be recorded and available on demand for months after the congress, so if you miss a live session, you may come back and watch it later.

General Sessions with our featured speakers and other key talks will take place on Saturdays and Sundays for approximately 4 hours per day. We will incorporate other aspects of the World Congress throughout the week, including focused sessions, formerly known as “Workshops,” oral and poster abstracts in a special featured section, “Abstracts with the Experts” discussion tables, and networking opportunities. Exhibitors will have dedicated hours and additional optional office hours. There will be several company-sponsored satellite symposia. The Basics Course and Advanced/Board Review Course will take place separate from the World Congress in the months preceding.

As is always the case, the ISHRS World Congress will deliver the best education in the field from the top minds. We are introducing exciting technology to achieve a highly interactive, fully engaging congress that will actively promote networking and will be entertaining as well. The first Virtual ISHRS World Congress is not to be missed!
