How volunteers contribute to our work


Volunteers are crucial to the smooth running of the MRCOG exams. Each year, we have a large number of opportunities for Fellows and Members to join our various exams subcommittees, which are involved in setting and modifying questions for MRCOG Parts 1 – 3 and the DRCOG examination. We also rely on volunteers to act as examiners throughout the year.


RCOG committees and groups support the education of the O&G workforce. Volunteers sitting on these committees represent the interests and continuing education of MTIs, trainees and doctors working in subspecialties. Our Trainee Committee, Core Knowledge Editorial Board and Specialty Education Advisory Committee (SEAC) depend on the expertise of doctors throughout the specialty and at every career stage.

Professional development

For doctors interested in supporting professional development, our Professional Development Committee (PDC) has a range of roles that further this important work. Members of the PDC contribute to the publication of TOG, support the revalidation process, help to tackle differential attainment and work with the RCOG Women’s Network and representatives from the SAS-LED Committee.
