ESGO Exam Committee Tweet ESGO Exam We are pleased to announce the launch of yet another major ESGO project: the ESGO examination in gynaecologic oncology. Starting November 2019 in Athens, ESGO will organize this MCQ-based examination yearly. A workgroup that includes gynaecologic oncologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, and pathologists has been working for months on elaborating a database of questions that encompass all fields of gynaecologic oncology. We encourage fellows and junior doctors to take this examination, as the ESGO theoretical exam is designed to complement their clinical training. More experienced colleagues, who need a certification of their knowledge in countries where gynaecologic oncology is not recognized as a subspecialty, may also benefit. A list of readings, including material available in the ESGO eAcademy, will be provided to candidates for exam preparation. The application process will start at the beginning of February. This project rounds out the list of services provided by ESGO, which is now a comprehensive body able to provide basic and advanced knowledge through its meetings, courses, workshops, and eAcademy. We now have a tool for the assessment of knowledge that is run independently of our fellowship program, which is active in most European countries. We do hope that many of you will take the opportunity to improve your knowledge by preparing for this demanding but fair assessment. This is one step further towards full recognition of gynaecologic oncology, the subspecialty which specifically serves gynaecologic cancer patients.
