Masterclass 2016

ESGO-ENYGO-ESO MasterClass 2016

A big thank you to everyone who made this year's Masterclass such a great success!

Currently, there are no structured intensive courses in Europe that cover the entire theoretical curriculum for gynaecological oncology.

The Masterclass 2016, organized by ESGO, ENYGO and ESO (European School of Oncology)on 17-18, June, 2016 in Lund, Sweden, aims to fill this important gap and need in education and training. It will impart up-to-date and standardised knowledge on the management of all aspects of gynaecological cancers to future gynaecological oncologists across Europe. This, in turn, will additionally facilitate a key goal of the harmonisation of training and education in gynaecological oncology throughout Europe. The funding is done with grants of ESGO and ESO allocated specifically for the Masterclass.


Learning Objectives

The learning objective of the Masterclass is to cover the entire curricula of the gynae-oncological subspecialty as defined by ESGO in conjunction with EBCOG and the section of the UEMS and which defines the European standards of training and care in Gynaecological Oncology. After the Masterclass, participants will have the full picture of the different types of cancers affecting women and their treatment. This will be in full compliance with the standards defined by ESGO/EBCOG, for example:

  • Anatomy applied to gynaecological cancer surgery
  • Cervical cancer
  • Vulvar cancers
  • Endometrial cancer
  • Ovarian cancer
  • Vulvar cancer
  • Miscellaneous (cancer in pregnancy, fertility preservation, psycho oncology, palliative care)

Teaching Format

The Masterclass is a 2-day residential educational event covering the entire curricula needed for ESGO-EBCOG (or local national society) accreditation in the subspecialty of gynaecological oncology. This full-immersion, clinically oriented, multidisciplinary event offers plenary lectures regarding state-or-the-art clinical evaluation and treatments with reference to clinical guidelines and which will conclude in take-home messages. State-of-the-art lectures will be combined with practical video presentations of surgical approaches. 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.
