ESGO-ENYGO-ESO Masterclass in Gynaecological Oncology

Not eligible for ESCO credits

14.06.2018  -  16.06.2018

Warsaw, Poland


Gynaecological cancers


Scientific and Organising Committe: D. Querleu, FR - K. Zalewski, PL - F. Peccatori, IT

After two successful previous editions [Madrid (2014), Lund (2016)], the ESGO-ENYGO-ESO Masterclass 2018 will present up-to-date, standardised knowledge of the multidisciplinary management of gynaecological cancers to future gynaecological oncologists. The course furthers the organisations’ key goal of harmonising gynaecological oncology training and education throughout Europe.

• Entire curriculum focused on gynae-oncological subspecialty theory
• State of the art lectures, video sessions, and interactive tumour boards
• Tracks on pelvic anatomy, diagnosis and treatment of cervical, vulvar, endometrial, and ovarian cancers
• Miscellaneous topics : perioperative and supportive care, fertility preservation, management of treatment complications, and palliative care
• Case reports presented by participants and interactively discussed at each track
• International faculty

This full-immersion, clinically oriented, multidisciplinary event offers plenary lectures regarding state-of-the-art clinical evaluation and treatments with reference to clinical guidelines. State-of-the-art lectures will be combined with practical video presentations of surgical approaches and tumour boards. This year, following previous participants’ feedback, discussion and tumour board time will be extended. In addition, to make the event even more interactive, we invite attendees to send us their own clinical cases (3-5 slides) prior to the course. Selected participants will have a unique opportunity to present and discuss their case study.
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-defi ned standards of training in gynaecological oncology.
