In 1962, the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC) was founded, and in the course of the years it developed into the leading European organisation in cancer research. Currently, the EORTC is organised into (Pre-)Clinical Groups and Task Forces consisting of scientists and/or clinicians. One of these groups with a specific area of interest in cancer research is the Gynaecological Cancer Group (GCG). The EORTC offers fellowship programmes to physicians and scientists from all over the world to create a possibility to be temporarily linked to an EORTC group or a specific research project. Over the past decade, 76 research fellowships have been appointed at the EORTC Data Center. This paper shows an overview of the activities of one EORTC/GCG medical fellow.
