COVID-19: Update for RANZCOG Trainees and SIMGs

21 March 2020

Following last night’s communication from RANZCOG, we thank all trainees and SIMGs for providing feedback overnight and for requesting further details from the College. We are working on a dedicated webpage with FAQs to be launched next week to address all questions and concerns. We will let you know when the page is launched with details of the link.
We value your feedback

Your feedback and requests of us are highly valued. We will continue to communicate with you and provide as much notice as possible in relation to any further changes, should they occur.
If trainees and SIMGs want to sit an examination as soon as it is possible, they should continue to prepare for this, and RANZCOG is actively looking at alternative online examination preparation activities. If trainees and SIMGs choose not to sit at the next opportunity, as stated in last night’s communication from RANZCOG, Trainees and SIMGs will be given a six-month extension within their training or SIMG Program from Monday 23 March 2020.

Subspecialist Trainees with specific concerns should contact their Subspecialty Chair.

If you would like to speak to someone outside the College for support we encourage you to access Converge International (specialists in psychology, mental health and wellbeing) on 1300 687 327 (Australia), 0800 666 367 (New Zealand) or, from other countries on +613 8620 5300.
