Programme: NPD Programme - Online.pdf



The RCOG Northern Professional Development Conference is aimed at providing an authoritative update on clinical problems relevant to the specialty of obstetrics and gynaecology. It will provide a similar programme, but in an alternative venue to the Annual Professional Development Conference held in London each year. Expert speakers will give an overview suitable to colleagues in all subspecialties, as well as generalists. The meeting also provides an opportunity to have informal discussions with College officers.

UK Specialist Societies will be hosting parallel breakout sessions, enabling you to tailor your attendance according to your interests. It is an ideal opportunity to meet colleagues from all specialities and catch up with developments in science, clinical practice and medical politics, as they affect obstetrics and gynaecology.
