Featured: Lecture and Discussion on Palliative Medicine and End of Life Care with Dr. Michael Pearl
Login to the IGCS Education Portal to access a recently recorded didactic focusing on palliative medicine and end of life care by Dr. Michael Pearl from Stony Brook University Hospital in the USA. Dr. Pearl is formally trained in both Gynecologic Oncology and Hospice and Palliative Medicine.
The lecture was recorded live with the international fellows enrolled in the IGCS Global Curriculum and Mentorship Program.
In the first 60 minutes of the recording, Dr. Pearl provides an overview of palliative medicine, including end-of-life care, ethics, and communication. After the lecture, he conducts and question and answer segment with the international gynecologic oncology fellows.
“Death is a natural and inevitable end to life; helping patients achieve an appropriate and easy passage to death is one of the most important and rewarding services that a physician can provide.” -American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine
New Literature Highlight in the Pathology Corner
The March supplement issue of the International Journal of Gynecologic Pathology is dedicated to findings from the ISGyP Endocervical Adenocarcinoma Project.
The goals of the project were to
1. understand the spectrum of current practices in pathologic evaluation and reporting of endocervical adenocarcinoma, including a review of the literature and a member survey,
2. improve global reproducibility of endocervical adenocarcinoma classification and pathologic reporting; and
3. assess prognostic significance of WHO/IECC endocervical adenocarcinoma classification and Silva pattern-based classification of HPV-associated adenocarcinomas.
Summaries of the articles are provided in the IGCS Pathology Corner.
Early Career Workshop
A recording of the Early Career Workshop (recorded live on January 30, 2021) and presentation slides are now available for members in the IGCS Education Portal.
Early Career Research & Publications Network
The goal of this network is to provide early career members with a supportive network of peers and mentors to discuss publishing and writing as critical components to career development. The network will also allow group members the opportunity to develop and promote research projects.
This network is open to IGCS members dedicated to the study of gynecologic cancers who are within the first five years of completion of sub-specialty training.
The network will convene via video conference, online discussion boards and in-person meetings at the IGCS Annual Global Meeting.
Joining the Network
Eligible early career members may request to join the network by logging into the IGCS MEMBER CENTER and clicking GROUPS in the top toolbar, then click +Join Group button. A message will be sent to an IGCS staff member who will verify your eligibility and you will receive an approved or denied message, depending on your completion year of training.
Please be sure your graduation year is filled out in your IGCS Member profile as this will determine your eligibility for the group.
If you are not an IGCS Member, Join today!
The volunteer mentors have previous and current experience in career development, mentorship, publishing and scientific presentation. The mentors will communicate regularly with the network to stimulate research ideas, provoke and moderate discussions and connect network members.

ASK A PATHOLOGIST
Ask a Pathologist is available to IGCS Members thanks to our Strategic Alliance Partnership with the International Society of Gynecological Pathologists. Answers to incoming questions are provided by the members of the IGCS Pathology Work Group and represent their opinion based upon the current and usual practices in the field.
Under the direction of Anna Plotkin, Pathology Work Group Lead, and with significant contributions from our Strategic Alliance Partner Members at the International Society of Gynecological Pathologists (ISGyP), the corner was created to streamline pathology related education curated specifically for gynecologic oncologists. We would like to acknowledge and express gratitude to our work group members for their efforts: Anna Plotkin, Work Group Lead (Canada), Blake Gilks (Canada), Siobhan O’Connor (USA), Joseph Rabban (USA), Adrian Suarez (USA), Gulisa Turashvili (Canada), and Rachael van der Griend (New Zealand) and all the contributors who have agreed to share content.
We hope you enjoy the new educational content in the Pathology Corner of the IGCS Member Education Portal!
