RCOG exams

Over two-thirds of MRCOG candidates sit the exam outside the UK in one of our 31 overseas exam centres.

Courses and training support

We offer courses and training support via a range of projects and partnerships.

MTI trainees

We support non-UK doctors who wish to come and train in Britain via the Medical Training Initiative (MTI) scheme.

Liaison Group activity

RCOG Liaison Groups are made up of doctors with a strong interest in developing women’s health care in a particular region or country.

International Representative Committees

RCOG International Representative Committees (IRCs) represent Fellows and Members in a particular region or country.
