ESGO-ENYGO-ESO Masterclass

Overview

This course is organized by ESGO, ENYGO (European Network of Young Gynaecological Oncologists) and ESO (European School of Oncology)

This new edition of the event will present up-to-date, standardised knowledge of the multidisciplinary management of gynaecological cancers to future gynaecological oncologists across Europe.

The course furthers the organisations’ key goal of harmonising gynaecological oncology training and education throughout Europe.

The Masterclass organizing committee has been very closely following all safety regulations and situation in Italy and we have been doing our best to make it possible to hold a face-to-face meeting.

The developments in the recent weeks have however forced us to re-consider our decision and we regret to inform you that ESGO cannot hold a face to face meeting in Rome and guarantee safety of all participants. 

The Masterclass 2021 will be held as an online course.

 

Target Audience

The ideal Masterclass candidate is a trainee or fellow in gynaecological oncology, who holds ENYGO membership and speaks fluent English.

Priority will be given to candidates who have not yet participated in the previous Masterclass in 2014 or 2016 or 2018 or 2019. The official course language is English.

Learning Objectives

The primary learning objective of the Masterclass is to cover the entire curriculum of the gynae-oncological subspecialty as defined by ESGO, which defines the European standards of training and care in Gynaecological Oncology.

This full-immersion, clinically oriented, multidisciplinary event offers plenary lectures, regarding state-of-the-art clinical evaluation and treatments with reference to clinical guidelines.

State-of-the-art lectures will be combined with practical video presentations of surgical approaches and tumour boards.

Key Topics:

  • Pelvic anatomy applied to gynaecological cancer surgery
  • Cervical cancer
  • Vulvar cancers
  • Breast cancer
  • Malignant tumors of the uterus
  • Malignant tumors of the ovaries
  • Miscellaneous (palliative care, side effects of chemotherapy, targeted therapy)
  • Presentation of selected clinical cases by participants with discussion

Teaching Format

 

The Masterclass is a 2-day residential educational online event covering key topics of the curricula needed for the ESGO accreditation in the subspecialty of gynaecological oncology.

  • The Masterclass will be held on afternoons of  June 24 and June 25, 2021  as an online event.
  • The participants will receive selected lectures a few weeks prior the Masterclass to watch them, fill in a short test and prepare questions for the discussion.
  • The second part of the lectures will be presented live online. At the end of both days there will be plenty of time for the discussion and questions.

The selected participants will have a unique opportunity to present and discuss their case study in 4 workshops. View the Call for Case studies Abstracts below

After the Masterclass, participants will have a full picture of the basics of different gynaecological cancers, their treatment, and care in compliance with the ESGO-defined standards of training in gynaecological oncology.

An international faculty of leading experts in the field will contribute to the program. The Masterclass will be conducted entirely in English.

Testimonials

ESGO Masterclass is a great opportunity to receive an update through the whole curriculum in gynaecological oncology in 3 days, delivered by the international multidisciplinary faculty, held in a friendly and open atmosphere of fellows from different parts of Europe. On top of that, in order to make it truly interactive, participants will have an opportunity to present selected case-reports and discuss them with the group.If I were a fellow nowadays, I would not miss it!

David Cibula

 

Over the last few years, ESGO has initiated and promoted the development and implementation of a European wide training program in gynaecological oncology.
However, there are countries where gynaecological oncology is still not recognized as a separate sub-specialty, no ESGO-accredited centers exist and therefore achieving competencies for training is still very challenging for some trainees. For these reasons the ESGO-ENYGO-ESO Masterclass was developed, aiming to fill this critical gap and need in education and training.
This time in Rome, you will be able not only to receive up-to-date and standardised knowledge, based on recent ESGO guidelines but also meet and interact with other trainees.

I would like to attract your attention to the ESGO-ENYGO-ESO Masterclass in gynaecological oncology. Already 4th masterclass delivers comprehensive content covering critical gynaecological oncology issues.
The Masterclass gives you a unique opportunity to gain up-to-date knowledge, interact with the speakers informally and to create new relationships with other young gynaecological oncologists.

General Information

As the  Covid-19 pandemic has returned, parts of Europe are currently experiencing its second or event third wave and the vaccination is not going as fast as originally expected, ESGO has been forced to review our offer of all face-to-face events.
Masterclass organizing committee has been very closely following all safety regulations and situation in Italy and we have been doing our best to make it possible to hold a face-to-face meeting.
The developments in the recent weeks have however forced us to re-consider our decision and we regret to inform you that ESGO cannot hold a face to face meeting in Rome and guarantee safety of all participants.
This is why the decision has been taken to change Masterclass 2021 to an online event.

Change of the format

  • The Masterclass will be held on afternoons of  June 24 and June 25, 2021  as an online event.
  • The participants will receive selected lectures a few weeks prior the Masterclass to watch them, fill in a short test and prepare questions for the discussion.
  • The second part of the lectures will be presented live online. At the end of both days there will be plenty of time for the discussion and questions.
