RANZCOG International Fellowship Program in Collaboration with FIGO

The Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG), in collaboration with the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO), is pleased to announce a Fellowship Program aimed at promoting women’s health in countries in the Pacific region.

The Program offers a one-week intensive experience at an Australian hospital for early-career O&G specialists from countries in the Pacific region, in addition to supporting their attendance at the virtual XXIII FIGO World Congress of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (21–28 October 2021).
The Fellowship Program enhances professional and personal development by giving international Fellows new clinical insights and experiences. The program provides opportunities for interaction with other Fellows and senior colleagues in the host country, and guided immersion in the local health system. By participating in the program, international Fellows will develop their professional networks and connections, to ensure a continuing legacy of engagement and collaboration as they develop their careers.

Successful applicants will be offered a place in the face-to-face Fellowship Program hosted by RANZCOG in 2022, once international travel has resumed in Australian and travel restrictions have been lifted.

Successful applicants will also be offered complimentary attendance to the virtual XXIII FIGO World Congress of Gynaecology and Obstetrics (21–28 October 2021).
