Reproductive Medicine – Definitive Document (PDF 1.8mb)

This is the Definitive Document for the Reproductive Medicine curriculum 2019 approved by the GMC, which contains full details of the Reproductive Medicine curriculum. Please use this document as a reference point.

The Reproductive Medicine curriculum is divided into 5 Capabilities in Practice (CiP).

Please see the Matrix of progression page for both the 2020-21 matrix of progression COVID-19 (for ST6-7 who have switched to the 2019 core curriculum) and the 2018-19 matrix of progression COVID-19 (for ST6-7 who are staying on the pre-2019 core curiulcum).
