No less than six months of the specialist education must be completed at a surgery unit. On a case-to-case basis, six months of service completed in any clinical specialist field in medicine or as a researcher can be incorporated into the programme. It is recommended to complete the programme in the following departments: anaesthesiology and intensive care, paediatrics, general surgery, urology, and medical genetics. Specialist education is completed at the University hospital and training units approved by the Faculty with a valid training agreement.
After completing the programme, specialists in gynaecology and obstetrics must be proficient in
- Monitoring normal and abnormal pregnancies
- Providing care and intensive monitoring during normal and complicated deliveries
- Diagnosing and treating gynaecological disorders
- Conducting procedures and surgical operations mentioned in the log book
At each training unit, specialising physicians will be appointed a personal tutor with whom they will regularly assess their learning. An individual specialisation plan will be drafted for each specialising physician, in addition to which the specialisation programme coordinator will regularly evaluate their progress. Each specialising physician will keep a personal log book. The log book is a central tool of self-assessment in evaluating progress in the programme.
After graduation, specialists in gynaecology and obstetrics have an opportunity to complete two years of specific training in the following fields: reproductive medicine, perinatology, gynaecological oncology and urogynaecology.
Further information on specialist education can be found on the Faculty of Medicine website.
