ENYGO Future Leaders Academy

ESGO - ENYGO Future Leaders Academy

Part I: November 29th - December 1st, 2018 Brussels, Belgium
Part II: January 17th - 19th, 2019, TBA 


The future university chairs and key ESGO and ENYGO opinion leaders in the XXIth century global competition will not only be good physicians and managers. They will need a mindset of collaborative research. They will need to be able to share their experience, results, and knowledge. They will have to be respected by their staff not only because they are the head of department, but because they are able to inspire their team and foster the growth of all the team players.

One more joint initiative of the ESGO and its very active young gynecologic oncologists group ENYGO, the first-of-its kind seminar in gynecologic oncology is designed to develop these generally neglected fields of skills.


The 6 days programme will be divided into two parts:

Lectures delivered during the first part of Day 1 of the ENYGO Future Leaders Academy (November/December 2018) will be delivered by ESGO leaders and other key oppinion speakers and will be devoted to operating and communicating within an international cooperation.

The Communication workshop organized during Day 2 and 3 will focus on communication skills, developing participants' presentation skills, helping them to create more engaging presentation, provide them with better skills when chairing a meeting or making a media presentation.


Lectures delivered during the second part of the ENYGO Future Leaders Academy (January/February 2019) will be mainly focused on working and communicating within a team (health personnel, patients and carers).

See the programme of Part I here:


Communication workshop


Second part will also include a 2-day workshop on Leadership skills – focusing on individual participants by using Hogan testing, the course will help participants to understand how they work under stress and how this influences their environment (colleagues, family). Participants will have the opportunity to explore their strengths and development areas and build solid base for evolving a functioning and empowering leadership style.


An international faculty of leading experts in the field will contribute to the program. Participation is compulsory throughout the course and both part needs to be attended.

The Future Leaders Academy will be conducted entirely in English. 


Don't miss this unique opportunity to develop your communication and leadership skills and broaden your knowledge.

Dear fellows,

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!

Dear colleagues,

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 year in Warsaw, 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.

See you in June!

Dear colleagues,

I would like to attract your attention to the ESGO-ENYGO-ESO Masterclass in gynaecological oncology. Already 3rd 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.
