An audit of European training in obstetrics and gynaecology.

Author information

Gynaecological and Obstetrical Unit, Aalborg Hospital, Denmark.


During 1997, The European Network of Trainees in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ENTOG) circulated a questionnaire to audit training in Europe. Results describe number and gender in each country, access to training, duration of training, tutor/tutee scheme, logbooks, minimum curriculum, assessment, criteria for accreditation, training abroad, final examination, hospital inspection, subspecialty, academic training, and career progression. Quality of life is tried to address with questions relating to salary, working hours, maternity leave, annual leave and study leave. EBCOG has drawn up recommendations to try and achieve a standardisation of quality of training whilst fully understanding that complete standardisation of training is not a realistic possibility due to social, cultural and ethical differences. A repeat audit is planned after 3 years to close the feedback loop.
