Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

The RANZCOG CPD program is designed to facilitate three endeavours: training, continuing education and review. Practice audit and reflection is an important requirement of the program, as O&G specialists are expected to continuously reflect on current practice and implement the necessary changes to improve practice and patient safety. The program offers guidance in planning education pathways and clinical practice improvement best suited to their professional needs and interests.

Contact the College for further information or to apply to participate in the RANZCOG CPD Program.
