Urogynaecology subspecialty training

This page provides information about subspecialty training in urogynaecology, including the curriculum, logbooks and assessments.


New curriculum and logbook introduced January 2014

The RCOG introduced a new urogynaecology curriculum and logbook in January 2014 to reflect changes in urogynaecology surgical practice and the introduction of new technologies. We also introduced a separate log of experience so you can keep a unified log of all the procedures you undertake.

Please ensure you’re using the correct versions:

The assessment forms are the same for both versions of the curriculum.


Curriculum and logbook – post-January 2014

Curriculum and logbook

There is also a generic subspecialty curriculum which applies to all subspecialties and should be completed alongside your specific subspecialty curriculum. The generic subspecialty curriculum covers non-clinical skills including communication, teamworking, leadership, clinical governance.

Optional laparoscopic urogynaecology module

We have introduced an optional laparoscopic urogynaecology module for subspecialty trainees in urogynaecology. The module should be integrated into the training programme on an optional basis where the opportunity exists, as this form of surgery is integral to patient service provision in the centres that it is offered.

Log of experience

Use the log of experience to keep a unified log of all the procedures you undertake. Your log of experience will be taken into account at your annual assessment.
