Who can nominate someone?

How are the submissions assessed?

A panel of RCOG assessors meet once a year to consider all the nominations. During these meetings, the group will create a list of all the nominees which are to be granted a Fellowship ad eundem or Fellowship honoris causa.

This list is then presented to the Council, before being published in our membership communications.

This application is hosted by Oxford Abstracts platform.
