The International Urogynecological Association's 41st annual meeting was held in Cape Town, South Africa in early August, 2016. Dr. Murphy was honoured by being asked to be on faculty for the conference, and was one of a select few people who taught during the two full day courses held for international delegates. He gave four lectures in total, during the workshop and course titled: Current controversies in pelvic floor surgery. The invitation re-confirms Dr. Murphy's standing in the international community as an recognized international expert.
Prior to the conference, Dr. Murphy also spent time at the University of Stellenbosch medical school and division of urogynecology and gave two lectures to the department of obstetrics and gynecology there.
