Faculty Development


One of the strategic aims of the college is to improve women’s health by providing high quality education and training and support of doctors throughout their careers. Faculty of obstetrics and Gynaecology Educators summit provides an excellent opportunity for Educators to come to the College and update themselves on important College initiatives in O&G education and training. The delegates will participate in a series of workshops aimed at developing their career as an educator (for example “how to be a College Tutor”, “how to be a College Examiner”, “how to be an ultrasound officer”) or addressing more general education topics (for example “trainees in difficulty”, “simulation training”, “introduction to RCOG leadership programmes” and “how to write an e-tutorial”). The workshops are designed to be interactive and will cover a broad range of topics suitable for Tier 2- Tier 4 educators.

The workshops are outlined in the programme. The aim of the course is to support trainers and therefore improve training, resulting in better doctors, providing improved and safer patient care. There will be the opportunity to network throughout the day with your colleagues from various tiers and exchange thoughts and ideas.

The course is mapped to the seven domains of the GMC (AoME) standards and criteria for trainer recognition and approval
