Training Support

RANZCOG recognises that trainees may experience periods of professional and personal difficulty, and that coping with the demands of a busy profession, developing skills, building knowledge as well as balancing family and personal commitments can be challenging. 

The College also recognises the importance of supporting Supervisors as they work to ensure Trainees have vital training and learning opportunities; are taken through new procedures and given adequate time to develop their skills under supervision.

RANZCOG is committed to supporting Trainees and Supervisors and has established the Member Support Unit. This is a safe, professional and impartial service for Trainees and Supervisors.

External Support Services

RANZCOG has partnered with Converge International, a confidential support service that is available to our trainees and supervisors 24/7/365.

RANZCOG is committed to supporting trainee and supervisor wellbeing and enhancing a culture of respect and professionalism.



The College is committed to early intervention and prompt resolution of complaints. 

All complaints received by Member Support will be triaged to enable a clear pathway for investigation and resolution. 

The member support unit aims to promote and implement an accessible complaints system to assist in strengthening relationships and enhancing the overall success of the training program.  We are committed to promoting a culture that is responsive to complaints and manages them in a fair and transparent manner.  We want trainees to feel confident and supported should they want to make a complaint.  Whilst the evidence suggests that supervisors are less likely to be subject to unprofessional behaviours we too want them to feel supported if they wish to make a complaint.

If you would like to discuss or lodge a complaint there are several avenues; please contact the following:
