Partner feedback

Dr Elizabeth Holt, Consultant in Obstetrics and Fetal Medicine, Corniche Hospital, Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

"Completion of RCOG specialty training is recognised internationally as a gold standard. The relationship between excellence in training is well correlated with the highest standards in delivery of healthcare and optimal patient outcomes.

In partnership with the RCOG, we started the RCOG Accredited year 5-7 Training program at the Corniche Hospital, Abu Dhabi in November 2022 – breaking new ground in the Middle East.

The Corniche Hospital is the largest, and longest established, provider of maternity and neonatal care in the UAE, delivering around 6,000 babies per year. Accredited tertiary level service is also provided in fetal and maternal medicine, gynaecology and reproductive medicine.

The RCOG has provided the clear standards expected for a training unit to meet, allowing benchmarking through ongoing assessment and feedback, to ensure equivalency with UK training.

Both the trainees and trainers have benefited from bespoke support and continuous education from the RCOG. We have monthly live RCOG educational sessions for the faculty to enable us to navigate such things as the ePortfolio and educational supervision.

The ultimate benefit of providing RCOG accredited training at the Corniche Hospital is for succession planning with home grown talent, providing the opportunity for career progression with an internationally recognised qualification, to ensure the future quality of women’s healthcare in the UAE."

Trainee from Corniche Hospital, Abu Dhabi, UAE

"An excellent opportunity being an overseas physician!
RCOG's advanced training programme has been a life changing experience for me, not only clinically but also for achieving non technical skills as well. This programme has opened a vast avenue for me to master effective communication, learn clinical governance issues and teaching, which is my passion. 
Being the first overseas trainee, I feel very proud to start two SITMs at Corniche Hospital. Thanks to the Corniche Hospital team and RCOG faculty who have been very supportive throughout my ST5 training year."
