We are happy to announce and welcome you to the 2022 ESGE-YEP Exchange Programme, in Portugal from 30th of September until the 2nd of October 2022. The selected participants will have the opportunity to experience the Exchange in numerous Portuguese cities such as Lisbon, Porto, Gaia, Coimbra, Braga, Viseu, Matosinhos and Faro.
Our goal is to combine the experience of a thoroughly informative, challenging scientific programme with exploring aspects of the Portuguese daily lifestyle, such as the local cuisine and culture. We are excited about the days you will be staying with us. After the exchange we hope to all meet each other at the ESGE 31st Annual Congress in Lisbon.
The ESGE-YEP Exchange brings together trainees from around Europe to improve standards, promote training and encourage research and exchange of information in gynaecological endoscopy.
Portugal is a country whose mainland is located on the Iberian Peninsula, in Southwestern Europe, and whose territory also includes the Atlantic archipelagos of the Azores and Madeira. It features the westernmost point in mainland Europe and its Iberian portion is bordered to the west and south by the Atlantic Ocean and to the north and east by Spain, the sole country to have a land border with Portugal. Portugal is the oldest continuously existing nation state on the Iberian Peninsula and one of the oldest in Europe, its territory having been continuously settled, invaded, and fought over since prehistoric times.
In the 15th and 16th centuries, Portugal established the first global maritime and commercial empire, becoming one of the world’s major economic, political, and military powers. Portugal has left a profound cultural, architectural, and linguistic influence across the globe, with a legacy of around 250 million Portuguese speakers, and many Portuguese-based creoles. It is a developed country with an advanced economy and high living standards. Additionally, it ranks highly in peacefulness, democracy, press freedom, stability, social progress, prosperity, and English proficiency.
