Payment of the full examination fee will now be required 7 days from the date of College’s notice of acceptance of the candidate’s examination application.
- Candidates who currently hold a voucher code will be refunded their examination fee.
- Candidates who have paid for the August FRANZCOG Oral Examination and have not been allocated a spot will also be refunded their examination fee.
- Candidates wanting to register for any future examination, the new payment process will apply.
Thank you to everyone who has provided feedback to the College on this issue, and we will continually review and re-evaluate our approach to education and training. The College welcomes the continued involvement of all its trainees – at every level – in contributing to its vision of excellence in women’s health.
