Continuing Professional Development

The College aims to facilitate safe, comprehensive Obstetric and Gynaecological care of the highest standard to the community. All College training and development programs aspire to assist Fellows and Members engage in continual learning and development. 

The RANZCOG CPD program aligns with the Medical Board of Australia’s Professional Performance Framework (PPF) and the Medical Council of New Zealand's recertification programme requirements that supports the strengthening of CPD programs.

Includes participation in self-directed learning and/or involvement in College roles and/or educational events.
