Part 3 MRCOG Clinical Examiners

We are recruiting Clinical Examiners for the Part 3 MRCOG exam

The Membership Examination (MRCOG), for hospital doctors wishing to specialise in obstetrics and gynaecology, currently consists of a Part 1 written examination, Part 2 written examination and Part 3 examination consisting of a clinical assessment involving multiple different tasks.

The Part 3 MRCOG Clinical Assessment aims to assess candidates’ ability to apply core clinical skills in the context of the skills, knowledge, attitudes and competencies as defined in the MRCOG curriculum.

To support the RCOG in delivering the Part 3 examination, we have new Part 3 Clinical Examiner opportunities for our Members and Fellows.

Part 3 Clinical Examiners are required to:

  • Attend the examiner training
  • Support the MRCOG revision course for 1 day prior to examining for the first time
  • Indicate availability to examine in the Part 3 MRCOG Clinical Assessment at least once every year
  • Attend the examiner briefing session prior to each examination
  • Examine in the Part 3 MRCOG Clinical Assessment
  • Maintain confidentiality of the examination

Message from Dr Paul Mills, Part 3 Sub-committee Chair

The success of the Part 3 exam is entirely dependent on the examiners. It is now a very well-embedded exam that continues to grow internationally. A fantastic and enthusiastic core of examiners has been established who enjoy not only enjoy helping the committee develop the exam but also catch up and network with colleagues from across the UK. Many of the examiners have also taken their interest and commitment further by joining the Part 3 committee.

In our first year at Union Street, we look forward to working with successfully appointed new Clinical Examiners in the November diet. The examiner dinners held between each day are always a highlight and will be our first on the southbank in 2020. Becoming an examiner not only allows you to actively take part in setting the standard of membership and women's healthcare globally, but to also see all aspects of the RCOG coming together and working in such a unique way. I look forward to receiving your application and, if successfully shortlisted, meeting you for our training day.
