ESGO Accreditation & Certifications

For Training in Gynaecological Oncology
and Ovarian Cancer Surgery Certifications

Be a part of the ESGO Accredited Centres for training in Gynaecological Oncology

Based on European standards of training and care as established by ESGO. ESGO provides supervision for accredited training, and has been running hospital recognition for excellence in training and care while accrediting centres across Europe.

The centres ESGO accredited as European Training Centres in Gynaecological Oncology are authorised to provide certified training.

As of Sep 2016, ESGO has set new rules for the application process of hospital accreditation for training in the subspecialty, since the prerequisite of accreditation for basic training in obstetrics and gynaecology is not required anymore. 

Process Overview

Accreditation Process

Hospital Re-Accreditations

  • Accreditation is valid for 5 years, followed by re-accreditation.
  • In principle, re-application follows the same procedures as the first application.
  • Accredited centres should apply for re-accreditation 6 months before the original accreditation expires.
  • The re-applying centre should provide a list of fellows trained during the accredited period.

In case of re-accreditation after 5 years since the first accreditation, usually an on-line tele-visit will be done and if all requirements are met, including fulfilment of recommendations from the first accreditation visit, accreditation may be granted again for 5 years .

However, ESGO may decide to require an onsite visit, e.g. based on earlier recommendations.

After another 5 years (so 10 years in total) the re-accreditation will again be done by a physical on-site re-visit.
