Endometrial and cervical cancers are amongst the leading cause of mortality and morbidity in Nigeria. My career choice of gynaecologic pathology is to be part of the mercenaries needed to help reduce this disease burden.
I am currently having a 3 month IGCS-sponsored fellowship at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford University Hospitals NHS under the supervison of Dr Sanjiv Manek. I am being trained in the proper handling and pathologic reporting of gynae-oncology specimens. We hold regular multidisciplinary meetings on the oncology cases. The hospital, being one of the largest cervical cancer screening centres in the United Kingdom further affords me a huge learning opportunity in cytology. It's barely one month into the programme and the experience has been very rewarding. My special thanks to IGCS for making this a reality.
