Annual Academic Meeting

The RCOG holds an Annual Academic Meeting each year to showcase the best of research in obstetrics and gynaecology in the UK, from basic science to clinical trials. Prizes are awarded for the best oral and poster presentations.

The 2-day meeting includes keynote plenary lectures, oral and poster presentations and workshops. The meeting also incorporates the Blair Bell Research Society annual meeting.

We welcome all who are actively involved in research in our specialty – academics, both junior and senior, basic scientists, NHS consultants and trainees and undergraduates.

For information about date, location and programme, please search the RCOG courses and events listings.
