Do not miss the Exam preparatory webinar!

The ESGO exam is a mandatory component to get the ESGO diploma in gynecologic oncology. As not all countries recognize gynaecologic oncology as a subspeciality, the ESGO diploma is an alternative pathway to demonstrate in-depth knowledge and skills in gynaecologic oncology.

The ESGO Exam was first introduced in 2019. The next ESGO exam will be held in Istanbul on the 28th of September 2023.

Registration fee for the ESGO exam will include free attendance of this ENYGO-ESGO webinar (Introduction to ESGO exam), planned for the 31st of August between 6-7.30 pm CEST.

You will receive the link for the webinar after the registration fee is paid.

The faculty of the webinar will provide you with practical information on the examination, give tips and tricks for preparing for the exam, including sample questions!

Moreover, the participants will have the ability to ask questions to the faculty and past candidates (or ESGO fellows) who successfully passed the examination in the interactive final 30 minutes of the webinar.

Don’t miss this exciting opportunity if you are planning to take the ESGO exam in 2023!
