Gynaecological Oncology

Gynaecologic oncology is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on cancers of the female reproductive system, including ovarian cancer, uterine cancer, vaginal cancer, cervical cancer, and vulvar cancer. As specialists, they have extensive training in the diagnosis and treatment of these cancers. A Gynaecologic oncologist is an obstetrician/gynaecologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of women with cancer of the reproductive organs. Specifically, the gynaecologic oncologist treats cancer of the ovary, endometrium, uterus, cervix, vagina, vulva and trophoblastic disease. In order to become a gynaecologic oncologist in the United States, a physician must first complete an approved, 4-year residency program in obstetrics and gynaecology. Following this, he/she must complete a 2–4-year clinical fellowship in gynaecologic oncology. Presently, there are 32 fellowship training programs approved by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynaecology, Inc (ABOG). The additional training during fellowship provides the skills needed for optimal care of women with a gynaecologic cancer.
