Doctors who are not Fellows of the College but have a postgraduate obstetrics and gynaecology qualification from a recognised institution can register to participate in the RANZCOG CPD program.
Participation as a non-member in the RANZCOG CPD program provides an opportunity for practitioners working in the speciality of obstetrics and gynaecology to enhance their knowledge and skills in the pursuit of excellence in women’s health.
The RANZCOG CPD program is designed to facilitate continuing training, lifelong learning and practice review by providing a CPD framework that aligns with the Medical Board of Australia’s (MBA) Professional Performance Framework (PPF) and the Medical Council of New Zealand’s (MCNZ) Recertification Requirements (RR), which support the strengthening of CPD programs.
The program offers guidance in planning education pathways and clinical practice improvement best suited to their professional needs and interests.
Non-members must complete the same CPD requirements as RANZCOG Fellows, depending on the participant’s scope of practice, proportioned to a years’ worth of CPD.
CPD requirements are based on a pro-rata of 12 months in relation to the FRANZCOG Fellowship program.
Ongoing participation to RANZCOG CPD as a non-member is contingent on accruing 50 Professional Development (CPD) hours over a 12-month period, and payment of the non-member yearly CPD participation fee (within one month of the new yearly cycle commencing).
A total of 50 hours must be accrued per yearly cycle.
Within the total 50 hours, the following requirements must also be met:
