Webinar Curriculum

The new ESGO Curriculum, a new training paradigm explained

For the last decade, ESGO-certified gynaecological oncologists have been trained according to the first ESGO Curriculum. In the meantime, requirements have changed, surgery has become more complex, oncological care has become more multidisciplinary and evidence is required also for modules and assessments during training.

The ESGO new Curriculum has been established, mainly based on and around competence and structure of the general basic training in obstetrics and gynaecology. The eLogbook, that will be available when the new Curriculum comes into effect and will be provided for training in gynaecological oncology.

The ESGO new Curriculum will be presented at the ESGO New Curriculum Webinar on November 3rd, 2020 at 6 PM.

All involved in training, both representatives of the ESGO accredited centers, fellows in training and ESGO members will be provided with all necessary information on implementing the new Curriculum.

The new ESGO Curriculum will become compulsory as of January 1, 2021.

With the new Curriculum, ESGO has created clear guidance for a transparent and safe training environment.

Get registered for the Webinar that will be held on November 3, 2020 at 6 PM.

  • The training includes a minimum of two (2) and at the most three (3) clinical years of full-time equivalent (FTE) training according to a prospectively approved programme in an ESGO-accredited Gynaecological Oncology unit.
  • Fellows in their 1st year of a 2 year programme or in their 1st or 2nd year of a 3 year programme need to switch immediately to the new curriculum
  • Fellows in their last year may choose to switch to the new curriculum and online portfolio or continue with the past requirements of the old curriculum.
  • Successful completion of the curriculum and a passing mark on the ESGO theoretical Exam are mandatory requirements for obtaining the ESGO certification. The ESGO Exam must be passed within six (6) years from the formal start of training.
