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 December 16, 2020 at 1:30 PM during the ESGO State of the Art Conference 2020 in Copenhagen, Denmark.
