EURAPAG Trainee Congress Frankfurt 2019

Final Summary of the first Trainee 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).
