Gynecologic Oncology Global Curriculum & Mentorship Program

IGCS gratefully acknowledges our dedicated team of international and local mentors who volunteer their time and resources to this program. By training and mentoring the next (and sometimes first) generation of gynecologic oncology specialists in these low-resource settings, they are directly fulfilling IGCS’s mission to enhance the care of women with gynecologic cancer worldwide.
