Endometriosis Millennium Fund

The RCOG is proud to support the Organising Committee of the World Congress of Endometriosis who, through a generous donation, have established the Endometriosis Millennium Fund.

Available to RCOG Members and Trainees working in the British Isles, the RCOG is able to offer up to £5,000 in order to stimulate and encourage research (clinical or laboratory based) in the field of endometriosis.

Clinicians are encouraged, with the use of the funds to acquire extra clinical skills in order to more efficiently manage patients with the disease.

The winning applicant will be invited to receive their certificate at RCOG’s Annual Academic Meeting.
