BGCS Basingstoke training opportunity
04 July 2021
The BGCS is working with the Peritoneal Malignancy Institute at Basingstoke to support the training of subspecialty trainees in cytoreductive surgery. This initiative has been established by Janos Balega and Phil Rolland with the support of the training subgroup.
On the 27th April 2021, a competitive interview was held for the special training post for gynaecological oncology trainees, advertised by the Peritoneal Malignancy Institute in Basingstoke. Four gynaecological oncology subspecialty trainees from RCOG accredited training centres applied and were all shortlisted for the interview. The interview panel included the clinical lead of the Institute and three gynaecological oncologists representing the BGCS. All four trainees interviewed very well and qualified for the training post: Aemn Ismail, James Dilley, Anastasios Tranoulis and Michelle Godfrey will all spend 3-4 months in theatres, ward cover, MDT meetings at the Peritoneal Malignancy Institute in Basingstoke from September 2021 onward.
This is a unique and powerful opportunity for the subspecialty trainees in the UK to improve their skills in the surgical management of ovarian cancer. The aim is to improve their skills in the perioperative management of patients undergoing cytoreductive surgery.
Congratulation for all four trainees and we wish them good luck during their training in Basingstoke. The interview for the 2022/23 rotation will be held in April 2022.
