This unique one day course will cover the core curriculum subjects examined in the DRCOG examination used a tried and tested bite sized approach to highlight key facts and topics. Following a brief tutorial in the core subjects, practice questions will be attempted and then a discussion of which are, and more importantly why these are the correct answers. This follows a similar approach to the RCOG revision guide to the DRCOG and is the only face to face course available currently in the UK. With the vast array of guidelines and internet resources it can be difficult to know where to start with revision and exam practice. This course aims to address those needs by signposting key resources that are used in writing the exam questions. The course has been designed by previous committee members who have written exam questions so have a unique insight into the structure of the exam. 

The DRCOG is a useful qualification for GPs both in training and in practice. It credentials an interest in women’s health which forms a significant part of A GP’s workload. The DRCOG is a clinically orientated examination anchored in topics regularly encountered in general practice. It is an achievable qualification with a combination of clinical experience and focussed revision. Additional qualifications alongside MRCGP can be the foundation of developing a special interest or extended role both in general practice and in closer links with colleagues in secondary care. 

Who should attend?

The course is aimed at all candidates attempting the DRCOG. The DRCOG examination is ideally suited to trainees in an obstetrics and gynaecology post as part of their general practice or foundation. Previous feedback has shown that GP trainees who aren’t doing O&G as part of their training specifically take the DRCOG as they recognise that women’s health will form a large part of their workload once qualified. The DRCOG also helps qualified GPs to consolidate their knowledge of O&G and potentially develop an extended role. Based on evidence from other RCOG face to face courses, this course will improve the chances of exam success at the DRCOG.
