Prague, Czech Republic


Gynaecological cancers


Scientific and Organising Committee: D. Querleu, FR - F. Peccatori, IT - K. Zalewski, PL - M.J. Halaska, CZ

After three successful Masterclass editions, the Masterclass 2019, organized by ESGO, ENYGO (European Network of Young Gynaecological Oncologists) and ESO (European School of Oncology), 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.

• 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

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.
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.
