Why take the DRCOG

Join a network of professionals

Demonstrate your expertise with the DRCOG

The DRCOG is a proven way to demonstrate knowledge of women’s health care, especially for general practitioners (GPs).

We want to build a network of motivated professionals who feel their experience and expertise can be validated by the DRCOG.

 

By gaining the DRCOG qualification, you will:

  • Demonstrate your interest in women’s health and expand your knowledge
  • Provide evidence of knowledge for extended roles or specialisation in larger GP practices
  • Complement and support your knowledge base for the women’s health element of the MRCGP

 

Who should take the DRCOG?

  • GPs who want to improve and demonstrate their knowledge and interest in women’s health.
  • GP Registrars (especially during O&G placement) – ST1/ST3
  • Any medically-qualified practitioner who wishes to improve and demonstrate their knowledge and interest in women’s health
  • Doctors working in O&G departments not intending to sit MRCOG
  • Doctors working in private women’s health clinics
  • Associate Members who wish to obtain an RCOG qualification in women’s health

 

"I found the DRCOG really helped me improve my knowledge of women’s health, enriching and enhancing what I learnt on my obstetrics and gynaecology placement as a GP trainee. I would recommend it to all GPs and GPs in training who wish to improve their knowledge of women's health."
