Specialty Training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (O&G) in the UK

Obstetrics and Gynaecology is a branch of medical sciences which is a mix of both medical and surgical care. Training in OB/GYN in the UK is highly sought after and competitive.

Related sub-specialties

Obstetrics and gynecology is a run-through training program where there is no separation between core and specialty training. It's 7 years long, and you need to pass MRCOG part 1 between ST2 and ST3 years and MRCOG part 2 and 3 between ST5 and ST6.

Please go through Specialty (or GP) training in the UK for more information regarding how the training is structured.

The following subspecialties can also be pursued during or after training:

  • Gynaecological oncology
  • Maternal and fetal medicine
  • Reproductive medicine
  • Urogynaecology
