MRCOG Part 3 Global Diets 2021

The impact of the pandemic in 2020 prevented the RCOG from being able to hold any MRCOG Part 3 diets. In January 2021, we were able to get up and running again with a small UK diet and have plans to do so again in March. But it is crucial that we are able to run the exam outside of the UK and enable candidates around the globe the opportunity to attend. Whilst the impact of the pandemic makes this challenging, it is a big priority for us during 2021. This short video is aimed at candidates and colleagues outside of the UK, and describes our plans for 2021, including our intention to run diets outside of the UK in May and November. If you have any questions regarding the MRCOG Part 3 please contact

Please see our March 2021 update on the MRCOG Part 3 News and updates page for details on plans for the MRCOG Part 3 exam across 2021.
