Gulf development project

The RCOG has identified the Gulf region as a priority for sustainable growth. We’re developing a route map to help trainees and senior doctors to gain RCOG membership or become accredited faculty, and also plan to develop accreditation programmes, partner with training centres and university hospitals and explore the possibility of setting up a regional RCOG office.
