Abstract

In general, the gynaecologic oncologists should be fully equipped to manage primary treatment and most complications related to the care of patients with gynaecologic neoplasms. During the subspecialty trianing program the fellow in trianing should learn to understand and perform radical pelvic surgery, including intestinal and urology procedures, and in addition a deep knowledge of chemotherapy and radiation therapy is important for the complete treatment of gynaecologic neoplasms. The subspecialty of gynaecologic oncology has made many advances over the last few decades; there have been several changes to the management of gynaecologic cancers, which have led to improved outcome and well-being of patients.
