MRCOG training (UK) programme at Aster Medcity is a new partnership between the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists, UK and Aster Medcity. This is equivalent to the Intermediate training (ST 3-5) in UK where you enter the training programme with 2 years’ experience in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ST 1-2). The trainees entering the programme will be using the RCOG training curricula and over a period of three years, they will be able to successfully complete the MRCOG exams and become a member of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. This theme supports doctors in training to learn by recognising that their potential to develop the appropriate professional values, knowledge, skills and behaviours is influenced by the learning environment and culture in which they are educated and trained. Training and education should take place in an environment where patients are safe, the care and experience of patients is good, and education and training are valued. This training programme at Aster Medcity aims to ensure that learners receive appropriate educational and pastoral support to be able to demonstrate what is expected of them and achieve the learning outcomes required by their curriculum.
Once accepted into intermediate level specialty training in O&G, each trainee will be provided with an ePortfolio, which includes an eLogbook, to use to record attainment of competencies. The trainee needs to attain a defined level of competencies to progress from basic to intermediate ( ST3- ST5) level before completing the MRCOG Part 3 exam. In addition to our own faculty at Aster, there will be UK faculty to train the trainees through face to face and virtual meetings.
