The RCOG membership exam (MRCOG) is an internationally acclaimed standard qualification for career progression in obstetrics and gynecology. The exam consists of three phases:
- MRCOG Part 1 – This is a written examination to evaluate primary and clinical sciences relevant to the specialty.
- MRCOG Part 2 – This too is a written examination that assesses the application of knowledge.
- MRCOG Part 3 – This is a clinical skills exam that evaluates a candidate’s ability to apply clinical skills in the context of the knowledge, aptitude, and competencies defined in the MRCOG curriculum.
