RANZCOG is accredited by the Australian Medical Council (AMC) on behalf of the Medical Board of Australia (MBA) and the Medical Council of New Zealand (MCNZ) to deliver specialist medical education and training, and professional development programs.
AMC and MCNZ accreditation
At its meeting in November 2019, the AMC resolved to grant an extension of the accreditation of the RANZCOG training and education programs and the continuing professional development programs in the specialty of obstetrics and gynaecology by four years to 31 March 2024.
At its meeting on 11 and 12 February 2020, the MCNZ decided to extend the RANZCOG’s accreditation for the remaining balance of its accreditation period (until 31 March 2024) in line with the AMC.
*The report covers the period September 2018 through to the end of August 2019.
Information about the standards which all specialist medical colleges are assessed, as well as the accreditation process more generally, is available on the AMC website.
As part of ongoing accreditation requirements, RANZCOG is required to submit regular Progress Reports, detailing significant developments and providing updates and data in relation to the AMC and MCNZ standards.
A Progress Report was not required in 2020 due to the satisfactory outcomes of the 2019 Comprehensive Report.
