Key Study Summaries

What are the key study summaries?

In every speciality there  are studies that shape the way how we mange certain conditions; these studies are called key studies. Knowledge of and understanding the key studies, as well as critically appraising them, is key to safe and successful management. We launched the key study summaries project with the aim to bring all the important studies in gynaecology to one place and make it easily accessible no matter where you are. 

We are always looking for authors  to contribute in the key study summaries and other projects. If you wish to submit your contribution please follow the link. We look forward hearing from you.
