Obstetrics and Gynaecology

NHS England working across Yorkshire and Humber School of Obstetrics and Gynaecology offers a high standard of training at all levels, including sub-specialty opportunities and academic training opportunities.

If you are a new Postgraduate Doctor in Training (PGDiT), please familiarise yourself with this website, particularly what needs to be done when beginning as an obstetrics and gynaecology Postgraduate Doctor in Training (PGDiT). All the relevant information can be found in the New Trainee folder.

Our Responsibilities

The School of Obstetrics and Gynaecology believes in working together with Postgraduate Doctors in Training (PGDiTs) and trainers to provide opportunities, guidance and support so that Postgraduate Doctors in Training (PGDiTs) can gain the highest standards of training from enthusiastic trainers who have expertise to share.

We aim to provide training opportunities to challenge Postgraduate Doctors in Training (PGDiTs) to fulfil their potential and to develop clinical and leadership skills. They can then work effectively within multidisciplinary teams in the changing environment of the NHS, underpinned by the GMC’s principles of Good Medical Practice.

Every Postgraduate Doctor in Training (PGDiT) will be allocated a trained Educational Supervisor, who together with the College Tutor and Training Programme Director, will ensure that appropriate training opportunities and fair assessments are undertaken in line with RCOG annual training targets required to achieve a satisfactory ARCP outcome. In return, Postgraduate Doctors in Training (PGDiTs) are required to agree a training contract and work with their Educational Supervisors to utilise the opportunities available to them.

We welcome feedback from both Postgraduate Doctors in Training (PGDiTs) and trainers. We take comments about undermining very seriously. The school’s Workplace Behaviour Officer will raise awareness of acceptable workplace behaviour and provide confidential support and follow-up.

We hope that training in the Yorkshire and Humber region will be a challenging, rewarding and enjoyable experience. On completion of training, the specialty trained doctor will be able to provide high quality women’s health care during their professional life and become exceptional trainers themselves.
