RANZCOG Academic O&G Fellowships for Pacific medical schools

In conjunction with the Pacific medical schools, RANZCOG provides a fellowship to attract and support young specialist obstetrician gynaecologists who take up an academic position in either the University of Papua New Guinea (UPNG) or the Fiji National University (FNU).  
A RANZCOG Academic O&G Fellowship is offered to suitably qualified medical practitioners who are newly appointed to an obstetrics and gynaecology academic position, to support their professional development.  
The RANZCOG UPNG and FNU O&G Academic Fellowships have been offered since 2010 using a donation made to the previous Asia Pacific Women’s Health Fund.
