TOG CPD and SBA questions

Continuing professional development (CPD) questions are produced for most review articles published in TOG. If you have access to the RCOG CPD ePortfolio, you can answer the TOG questions as part of your knowledge-based assessment.

Single best answer (SBA) questions are also produced for most TOG articles. These are a helpful revision tool as they are similar to the question format in the MRCOG exams. However, the most recent questions are free to access for everyone, whether you are preparing for an exam or not. They can be found on the RCOG eLearning website.

Please read the page on TOG CPD questions in the Guide to CPD.
