Shiv RajanKing Georges Medical University, India

IGCS Member since 2018

Gynecological malignancies are very commonly referred in our hospital. I decided to pursue a career in this field in 2013. I have completed my research project in epithelial ovarian cancer at our university. I am actively involved in the clinical management of cervix cancer and germ cell ovarian tumors. We hold tumor board meetings and clinical pathological meetings every week. I am faculty in charge of the Hospital Based Cancer Registry Program at our university in which we are looking at pattern of care in cervix cancer. Currently, we are also promoting preventive oncology at our university.

Bushra KhanGynaecologic Oncologist, Ayub Teaching Hospital, Abbottabad

I decided to pursue a career in gynaecological oncology because there is a big need in my community and a profound lack of awareness of women’s cancer prevention and treatment. Even the very educated do not know enough about proper gynaecological oncological surgery.

After completing my fellowship in Gynaecological Oncology from Aga Khan University Hospital, Karachi, Pakistan, I joined a teaching hospital where I was already working. It caters a vast, mostly rural area where patients come in advanced stages. Unfortunately, the gynaecologists here have no clear understanding of managing these patients. I hope to bring my new knowledge to help the local population and utilize my IGCS membership to access education and resources and to make connections with gynaecologic oncology specialists around the world.

Freweini Tesfay MeleseAssistant Professor of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Saint Paulo's Hospital Millennium Medical College, Ethiopia

Member Since 2017.

The reason why I decided to pursue my career in women`s cancer are; 1. Women still are the disadvantaged segment of the population in our country. 2. There are very few gynecologic oncologists in my country which they recently graduated but still untouched demand. Being one of them, l will contribute something on provision and scaling up the standards of prevention, treatment, training and research activities pertaining the women’s cancer. 3. Finally of course, I have a major interest in treatment and study gynecologic malignancies. In addition to the activities that I have as a general gynecologist and obstetrician, I also have a major involvement in the diagnosis, treatment and follow up of women with cancer.

IGCS Member Since 2012

I am a medical oncologist but I've been passionate about women's cancers since medical school. I was fortunate that the opportunity to specialize in gyn oncology was an option during my fellowship. The patients are incredible and the science as well - plus there are so many discoveries waiting to be made.

I am currently the Director for Women's Cancers at Lifespan Cancer Institute, which includes overseeing the academic development towards a center of excellence within our breast and gynecologic cancers divisions. I mentor both faculty and fellows across specialties and also run a sexual health first responders clinic in the cancer center. I continue to be involved in social media and professional use, as both the chair of the Social Media Working Group for ASCO and the Digital Engagement Committee for SWOG. Finally, I continue to be involved in novel approaches to women's cancers as PI for multiple trials and as the co-chair of the Cervical Cancer Task Force for the US National Cancer Institute.
