About

The ESGO Examination in Gynaecological Oncology is a theoretical evaluation and a high level knowledge assessment that covers the entire subspecialty curriculum of gynaecologic oncology including the respective areas in medical oncology, pathology and radiation therapy. The Examination is open to all physicians treating patients with gynaecologic cancers.

The existence of a supra-national examination in gynaecological oncology provides an incentive for the development of departmental, university, national and European training programs.

The Exam can be also used on national levels as an excellent tool for learning and validation in countries where the subspecialty is not recognised. Whereas in such countries the national training programmes do not exist, the ESGO Exam provides a possibility for health care professionals to validate their professional competence.

Since the Exam reflects the ongoing European standardisation, harmonisation and quality assurance process in medicine in general, the successful candidates will receive an ESGO Diploma that certifies a high level of professional competence and excellence on European scale.

The ESGO Examination is a written test consisting of set of MCQs that have been created by team of professionals and match the rules set by the UEMS/CESMA. Successful candidates will be certified for five years. After five years recertification can be attained by re-taking the Exam (on passing, recertification is valid for a further five years).

 

Examination

The candidates will take the written examination in the length of 180 minutes.

The first ESGO Exam will take place on November 1, 2019 at 3 PM before the ESGO 2019 Congress in Athens, Greece.
