COVID-19 Impact for CWH, DRANZCOG and Advanced DRANZCOG Training

06 September 2021

With the ongoing COVID-19 restrictions and in some instances lockdowns across Australia, the College recognises that trainees’ ability to meet training requirements may be impacted depending on their geographical location.

RANZCOG acknowledges that the content of training may be altered in the current training environment. Many sites may see a reduction in elective procedures; however, there is an expectation that training in obstetrics and emergency gynaecology will continue unaffected.

Trainees can be reassured that the College is putting in place mechanisms to ensure disadvantage to trainees is minimised where possible in the current circumstances.

Trainees are encouraged to email the DRANZCOG training team via [email protected] if they feel progression may be impacted or have any concerns regarding training, outlining individual circumstances for consideration.


RANZCOG examinations will proceed as scheduled. All oral examinations are conducted online using web conferencing technology in collaboration with the Adelaide Health Simulation Centre. With regards to the written examination, the College has established contingency plans to accommodate COVID-19 restrictions in response to individual jurisdiction health guidelines. Given restrictions can change at short notice, the College will communicate with impacted candidates in a timely manner. Candidates are encouraged to visit the College website for up-to-date information.

For examination-related information or queries please contact [email protected].
