The GOG Foundation, Inc. (GOG) and the International Gynecologic Cancer Society (IGCS) are pleased to announce a strategic partnership whereby the GOG will be the preferred educational provider for Industry Supported Symposia (ISS) starting at the IGCS Annual Global Meeting in Seoul, South Korea, November 5-7, 2023. Together, the two organizations will work synergistically to determine the most relevant topics for symposia each year and the optimal delivery method. These symposia will be developed with ACCME rules and guidelines to ensure that all information presented is fair and balanced. 

GOG and IGCS established this collaboration to bring current practice-relevant education to meeting attendees by partnering with industry. Industry supported symposia are an important learning tool and an integral part of medical society congresses.  While the education developed and offered at the IGCS ISS are not part of the scientific sessions, they will be created to provide clinical content that is valuable to attendees to implement into clinical practice.  The design of the education is meant to improve patient care and health outcomes, educating on the most contemporary clinical trial data in gynecologic oncology. 

When hearing about this opportunity, IGCS President, Dr. Keiichi Fujiwara said, “This partnership is a perfect opportunity to use the strengths of the GOG’s clinical research expertise to educate IGCS members and the thousands of delegates who rely on the IGCS Annual Global Meeting for the latest information in gynecologic cancer care.”

Dr. Larry Copeland, GOG Foundation President said, “The GOG Foundation is well positioned to play an integral role in the dissemination of practice-changing education to IGCS’ global audience. It further enhances the mission-driven purpose of both organizations to transform the standard of cancer care in gynecologic oncology.”
