If you meet the entry requirements, the Institute of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists General Division Professional Competence Scheme allows you to maintain your professional competence.
Once your enrolment is complete, we will give you access to exclusive resources and advice tailored for doctors in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
You can also browse our wide range of CPD-approved courses and educational programmes suitable for doctors in your specialty.
If you are on the General or Supervised Division and do not meet the entry requirements for this Scheme, you can enrol on the Irish Committee on Higher Medical Training General Division Scheme.
If you are on the Specialist Division, you should enrol on a Specialist Division Professional Competence Scheme.
If you’re not sure which Scheme you should enrol on, contact us and we will be glad to help.
