CANCELLED: ESGO-ENYGO-ESO Masterclass in Gynaecological Oncology

30 ESCO credits

29.10.2020  -  31.10.2020

Rome, Italy


Important information

On behalf of ESGO, ENYGO and ESO we would like to inform you that due to the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis we have made the difficult decision to cancel the Masterclass in Gynaecological Oncology programmed for 29-31 October in Rome, Italy.

We deeply regret having to take this decision but we feel that in the current climate we all need to do our part in trying to limit the diffusion of the virus as much as possible and this was the only decision possible considering your role in society as medical staff.

We apologize for any inconvenience caused but we think you’ll all agree that this solution was unavoidable.


Organising Committee: P. Morice, FR - F. Peccatori, IT – N. Bizzarri, IT

After four successful Masterclass editions, the Masterclass 2020, organized by ESGO, ENYGO (European Network of Young Gynaecological Oncologists) and ESO (European School of Oncology) on October 29-31, 2020 in Rome, Italy, will present up-to-date, standardised knowledge of the multidisciplinary management of gynaecological cancers to future gynaecological oncologists across Europe.
The course furthers the organisations’ key goal of harmonising gynaecological oncology training and education throughout Europe.

• Pelvic anatomy applied to gynaecological cancer surgery
• Cervical cancer
• Vulvar cancers
• Breast cancer
• Malignant tumors of the uterus
• Malignant tumors of the ovaries
• Miscellaneous (palliative care, side effects of chemotherapy, targeted therapy)
• Workshops: Presentation of selected clinical cases by participants with discussion

The Masterclass is a 3-day residential educational event covering key topics of the curricula needed for the ESGO accreditation in the subspecialty of gynaecological oncology.
This year, following previous participants’ feedback, discussion and tumour board time will be extended.
In addition, to make this year's event even more interactive, selected participants will have a unique opportunity to present and discuss their case study in 4 workshops. View the Call for Case studies Abstracts. Template HERE
After the Masterclass, participants will have a full picture of the basics of different gynaecological cancers, their treatment, and care in compliance with the ESGO-defined standards of training in gynaecological oncology.
An international faculty of leading experts in the field will contribute to the program. Participation is compulsory throughout the course. The Masterclass will be conducted entirely in English.
