Summary of the first Trainees’ Congress in PAG in Frankfurt am Main, 2019

EURAPAG Paediatric and adolescent gynaecology is a special field of interest within general gynaecology and obstetrics. Unlimited access to healthcare, promotion of education of adolescent patients, and, first and foremost, specialized healthcare providers and consistent guidelines for the most pressing gynaecologic health issues in adolescents, are in the boards’ opinion, the cornerstones for provision of high quality adolescent care. The EURAPAG noticed knowledge gaps in educational training for residents in PAG in several European countries. Some clinical situations in children and adolescents are rare and the attending physician might not have had appropriate training as a resident. Each country organizes their training for residents and undergraduate students differently. On February 15 and 16, 2019, the first Pan-European trainees’ congress was organized by EURAPAG. Almost 100 delegates from 22 European countries came to Frankfurt to learn more about paediatric and adolescent gynaecology (PAG).

Board meeting in London

Board meeting in London

The RCOG hosted the Board of the European Association of Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology over the weekend of 26-28 October 2018.  The Board under the Presidency of Paul Wood (FRCOG) were meeting in London in order to create a Pan-European Curriculum for Subspecialty Training in Paediatric and Adolescent Gynaecology.  After a significant amount of preparatory work and two long sessions (and with the help of the College meeting room facilities and accommodation) a draft of the document has been successfully completed. This will be shared with the European Board and College at their next Council meeting in Brussels.  Despite Brexit, European professional contacts between the UK and Europe in Obstetrics and Gynaecology remain strong and will hopefully continue for many years to come!
