“The IGCS Fellowship program has profoundly expanded my skill and knowledge toolkit which will definitely and positively impact my lifelong clinical practice."

The Global Curriculum was established in 2017 under the leadership of then-President, Michael Quinn. It is a comprehensive two-year education and training program designed for regions around the world that do not currently have formal training in gynecologic oncology.

Dr. Paula Lee, Gynecologic Oncologist at Duke University School of Medicine (USA) and International Mentor for the Uganda Cancer Institute congratulates the recently trained fellows:
“I am extremely proud of Pius, Julius, and Martin for their accomplishments and completion of the fellowship. They have made many sacrifices to achieve their professional goals to improve the care and outcome for women with gynecologic cancers. Their success is also a reflection of the dedication of the local mentors, especially during this past year when international mentors have not been allowed to travel due to the COVID19 pandemic. The unusual challenges have been an opportunity for growth and for local leadership to recognize the importance of paving a path for the local mentors to lead this training site in gynecologic oncology. As an external mentor, I am grateful for IGCS, the local mentors and leaders, all the faculty participating in our ECHO Tumor Board sessions, and of course to all the fellows. Congratulations Pius, Julius, and Martin!”
