The primary learning objective of the Masterclass is to cover the entire curriculum of the gynae-oncological subspecialty as defined by ESGO, which defines the European standards of training and care in Gynaecological Oncology.

This full-immersion, clinically oriented, multidisciplinary event offers plenary lectures, regarding state-of-the-art clinical evaluation and treatments with reference to clinical guidelines.

Key Topics:

  • Cervical cancer
  • Vulvar cancers
  • Breast cancer
  • Malignant tumors of the uterus
  • Malignant tumors of the ovaries
  • Miscellaneous (palliative care, side effects of chemotherapy, targeted therapy)
  • Workshops: Presentation of selected clinical cases by participants with discussion

After the Masterclass, participants will have a full picture of the basics of different gynaecological cancers, their treatment, and care in compliance with the ESGO-defined standards of training in gynaecological oncology.
