Committed to the cause of excellence in care and education, since 2010 ESGO aims to establish multidisciplinary standards for care in training and ovarian cancer surgery, and acts as the European authority in the field of gynaecological oncology.
Requirements of gynaecological oncology increased, surgery has become more complex, oncological care has become more multidisciplinary and evidence is required also for modules and assessments during training.
The ESGO “new” Curriculum (compulsory as of January 1, 2021) has been mainly based on and around competence and structure of the general basic training in obstetrics and gynaecology.
The eLogbook has been provided for training in gynaecological oncology and is compulsory for all fellows undergoing the ESGO certified training.
The portfolio must be completed within four (4) years after the formal start of training. Retrospective fulfilment of the criteria, e.g., completion of the portfolio over years of oncological practice without a registered and defined training programme, is not allowed.
