Since 2010, ESGO has aimed to establish multidisciplinary training standards and acts as the European authority in gynaecological oncology.
These standards have been adopted in numerous European countries as a model for national subspecialty training and care programmes, and are used as a reference in countries where subspeciality training does not formally exist (yet).
With the changing landscape of the subspeciality training standards, ESGO recognises the need for a recognition process for the expertise and skills of experienced gynaecological oncologists.
This fall, ESGO will offer experienced surgeons in the field the ''ESGO Professional Recognition in gynaecological oncology'' certificate, a timely opportunity that will be open from October 1st, 2022, until December 31st, 2022!

Final decision and approval will be granted by the Training committee.
In an entirely exceptional way, ESGO members that turned fifty or more this year, with over five years of membership in international Gynaecological Oncology associations, will have a unique opportunity to receive the Certificate of Professional Recognition in Gynaecological Oncology.
Senior Members who have devoted their entire professional careers to our splendid profession will be able to apply for this certificate for a limited time this fall.
This special recognition will thus remain an invaluable resource and a precious contribution to our patients and subspeciality.
