Certification in Urogynaecology (CU)

The Certification in Urogynaecology (CU) will equip you with the expert knowledge and skills to comprehensively manage patients with urogynaecological disorders.


Urogynaecology is a subspecialty of obstetrics and gynaecology.

Urogynaecologists are specialists in obstetrics and gynaecology, awarded the Fellowship of RANZCOG (FRANZCOG), who are trained and assessed as being competent in the comprehensive management of patients with urogynaecological disorders.

A subspecialist in urogynaecology must spend at least 66 per cent of his/her clinical time working in the area of their specialty, the remainder being split between either obstetrics or gynaecology.
