The Global Curriculum was established in 2017 under the leadership of then-President, Michael Quinn. It is a comprehensive two-year education and training program designed for regions around the world that do not currently have formal training in gynecologic oncology.

Congratulations to Drs. Changule, Daud, and Rangeiro on achieving this important milestone. They will be the first formally trained gynecologic oncologists in Mozambique.

“Thank you very much to the whole IGCS team. I am aware that with the program many Mozambican women will be benefited, (during the training, many Mozambican women with gynecological cancer received the appropriate treatment), it is our duty to continue treat them properly.

Special thanks to Drs.: Kathleen Schmeler, Ellen Baker, Mila Pontremoli Salcedo, Geórgia Fontes Cintra, Renato Moretti, Andre Lopes and Marcelo Vieira who were engaged to train us (I am sure that we can always count with you), you trained us with professionalism and goodwill, in a country that did not even have an oncologist gynaecologist. Thank you, amazing team!”
