This page provides details of the benefits of being on the RCOG Trainees’ Register for UK trainees only

International trainees can become an RCOG Associate member in order to access a range of benefits.

StratOG (eLearning)

StratOG is the RCOG’s eLearning resource, supporting clinical training in O&G. Trainees who are up to date with their Trainees’ Register fees can access:

  • Core Training eTutorials: the 98 Core Training eTutorials mirror the core curriculum modules - interactive and stimulating, the eTutorials are structured to support busy training schedules and to develop knowledge alongside skill
  • Resources to support technical skills, for example instrumental delivery and perineal repair
  • Resources to support non-technical skills, including resources on workplace-based assessments and workplace behaviour
  • Teaching resources: case studies and discussion questions taken from the Core Training eTutorials, which can be used for focused revision for the Part 2 MRCOG exam without the tutorial content and structure.
  • Workplace videos: videos showing best practice in workplace-based assessment, and also bullying, harassment and undermining behaviour in the workplace and how to deal with these issues constructively
  • Some of the online lectures: recorded lectures from RCOG events and courses
  • A series of CPD case studies, aimed at consultants but also suitable for trainees
