ESGO Centre Accreditations

For Gynaecological Oncology
Training and Surgery

Be a part of the ESGO Accredited Centres in Training in Gynaecological Oncology

Based on European standards of training and care as established by ESGO, ESGO provides supervision and recognition for excellence in training and care by accreditation of centres across Europe.

Centres accredited by ESGO as European Training Centre in Gynaecological Oncology are authorized to provide certified training and prepare fellows for certification as FESGO (Fellow of ESGO). Centres that meet the criteria for a training centre as set in the ESGO Curriculum  can apply for accreditation. As from January 1st 2024 the entire process of (re-)application and recognition can be started and followed ON-LINE.

Only centres that meet the Curriculum criteria should start the application process. This can now be done on-line using the REDCap platform, which you might already have been using for certification in ovarian cancer surgery or endometrial cancer treatment.

The platform will guide you intuitively through the application process and in doing so it will already check the data for your centre to be provided. Keep a digital copy of your Training Programme. i.e. the fellow programme adapted to your local situation, and of your latest Year Report at hand to be uploaded.

Note that you will receive e-mails with active hyperlinks etc.

Hospital Re-Accreditations

    • Accreditation is valid for 5 years, followed by re-accreditation.
    • In principle, re-application follows the same procedures as the first application.
    • Accredited centres should apply for re-accreditation 6 months before the original accreditation expires.
    • The re-applying centre should provide a list of fellows trained during the accredited period.
    • Centres need to adapt the updated Curriculum to the local environment. From now on, when centres apply for (re-)accreditation, centres will need to provide the ESGO office a direct comparison of their local training programme with the ESGO Curriculum.
    • In order to apply for re-accreditation, a centre should have had at least one ESGO fellow/trainee during the most recent period of accreditation.


  • In case of re-accreditation after 5 years since the first accreditation, usually an on-line tele-visit will be done and if all requirements are met, including fulfilment of recommendations from the first accreditation visit, accreditation may be granted again for 5 years .However, ESGO may decide to require an onsite visit, e.g. based on earlier recommendations.After another 5 years (10 years since the first accreditation) the re-accreditation will again be done by a physical on-site re-visit.
