FRANZCOG Curriculum

The FRANZCOG Curriculum encompasses an educational plan designed to bring about change. Educational objectives are specified to provide clear information of the knowledge and aspects of practice where competency is expected and assessed. Assessment of competencies is structured to reflect the pathway of learning required throughout training.

It is the responsibility of all trainees and Training Supervisors to be aware of the curriculum that underpins the FRANZCOG Training Program.
