We believe that our values play a fundamental role in shaping our culture and define the College’s organisational expectations for how we conduct ourselves in our day to day work and interactions, both within our profession and our workplaces. 

Our values are at the heart of what we stand for as an organisation and are embedded in our decision making, within our Policies & Procedures and within our staff recruitment process and appointments to the RANZCOG Board, Council and/or body position.
