Joint membership of The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) and The Prevocational Obstetrics and Gynaecology Society of Australia and New Zealand (PVOGS) provides an opportunity for either students studying medicine at universities in Australia and New Zealand, or prevocational doctors residing and practising in Australia or New Zealand, to expand their knowledge and skills of the specialty of obstetrics and gynaecology, or more broadly women’s health issues. Members will have access to the latest news, educational offerings and resources from both organisations.

The regulations that govern this class of membership are contained in Regulation A1.10. Please refer to the RANZCOG Regulations.
