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 surgery, medical oncology, pathology and radiation therapy. The Examination is open to all physicians treating patients with gynaecologic cancers - fellows and junior doctors to complement their clinical training, more experienced colleagues to obtain the certification of their knowledge in countries where GO is not recognised as a subspecialty.
The existence of a supra-national examination in gynaecological oncology provides an incentive for the development of university, regional, 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 theoretical knowledge.
Since the Exam reflects the ongoing European standardisation, harmonisation and quality assurance process in medicine in general, the successful candidates will receive an ESGO Certificate 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.
The candidates will take the written examination in the length of 180 minutes.
Next ESGO Exam will take place on June 19, 2020 at 1:30 PM during the ESGO State of the Art Conference 2020 in Copenhagen, Denmark.

An excellent exam. Majority of questions are clinical, practical & evidence-based & latest guidelines.

It's a good idea, especially for countries with low level of oncological education and training.
Geanina Elena Dragnea, MD
Preparing for the ESGO Exam has significantly enhanced my knowledge base.
Natalie Medley, MD
It made me study hard. It is a good way to be updated. And for countries that we dont have accreditation in Gyn/Onc is a good way to have one from a prestigious society as ESGO.
Santiago Scasso, MD
A very good effort that is very helpful especially in countries where gyn oncology is not recognised.
Savvas Argyridis, MD
Nicely organized exam, questions concerned all the gynecologic oncology fields, (even though we surgeons are less familiar with issues like psychooncology). The ESGO certification is really important to gynecologists like me working in countries with 0-1 subspecialty places. Thank you very much.
Dimitris Tourlakis, MD
Clinical practice requires capability to evaluate the problem and find the most suitable solution in an adequate period of time within the context of a continuously evolving multidisciplinary approach.
A regular update of competences is therefore needed. Preparation for the ESGO exam increases your knowledge in the fields of medical specialties which make you a gyneconcologist with a true multidisciplinary update approach.
