Current topics and debates will be illustrated and discussed in the most recent scientific literature, from genetics to molecular biology, from surgery to more  recent progress  of  chemotherapy  in the main gynecological neoplasms.

The proposed topics will be presented in the form of readings by recognized experts with reference to evidence-based medicine, national and international guidelines, convinced of the importance of continuous updating in order to be able to offer our patients the best of the profession . Furthermore, we wanted to introduce interactive sessions that, through the illustration of paradigmatic clinical cases and their discussion, can better convey the state of the art to the trainees.
