In collaboration with O&G trainees from Severn Deanery, the RCOG is delighted to offer a refreshed and re-formatted virtual National Trainees Conference 2021.

Across the two days, you will hear from high-profile speakers in exciting plenary sessions and delve deeper into topics of your choosing by attending breakout sessions. The good news is you can revisit content at any time, up to six months' post-event.

Our diverse programme has been designed by trainees, for trainees. It covers all four Professional Identities and as many CiPs as we could squeeze in!

This year, the conference will include an opportunity to hear from the RCOG Officers, as well as a Q&A session covering exams, the curriculum and the ePortfolio.

We are excited to be able to offer this bespoke virtual conference and look forward to welcoming you to NTC 2021.
