Undergraduate training in O&G

The national undergraduate curriculum in obstetrics and gynaecology is designed to provide medical students with the relevant competencies needed to practise as a foundation year doctor.

The rationale for the national undergraduate curriculum in O&G is as follows:

  • Women’s health impacts on all areas of medicine
  • O&G provides an ideal opportunity to cover key topics in Tomorrow’s Doctors, the GMC’s publication on outcomes and standards for undergraduate medical education
  • The national undergraduate curriculum in O&G facilitates the teaching of topics that are difficult to teach in other specialties
  • The national undergraduate curriculum in O&G promotes standards for curriculum content in medical schools
