Special Interest Groups

ESGE Special Interest Groups and Working Groups represent the Society and actively work on new developments in their fields and the ways to evaluate and implement these developments in general clinical practice.

A Special Interest Group (SIG) is defined as a long-term assembly of members with a special interest area in a sub-specialty of gynaecological endoscopy (eg. Urogynaecology, Oncology, Benign gynaecology/uterine disorders, Endometriosis, Reproduction) or with a special expertise (eg. imaging, quality aspects, research and guidelines). The members meet to discuss new developments in their area and the ways to evaluate and implement these developments in the general clinical practice.
