Structured Training of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

The aims are:

  • To equip all trainees with a broad range of understanding and competence in obstetrics and gynaecology

  • To ensure that professional competence can be acquired flexibly

  • To permit every trainee to have opportunities for the acquisition of skills which exceed those in the core curriculum

The minimum duration of the training is six years, comprising four years of  basic and two years of higher specialist training. From 2007 onwards, trainees may opts for a year of elective training in research or in a non-O&G clinical unit.

When trainees have completed basic training, fulfilled the logbook requirement, and passed the Structured Oral Examination, they can proceed to higher specialist training. At the end of the higher training, they can sit for the Exit Assessment, after which they will be accredited O&G specialist by the Hong Kong Academy of Medicine (FHKAM(O&G)).
