UK training in O&G requires a minimum of 7 years of specialty training (ST1–ST7), to be completed following the two years of foundation training. The programme is divided into basic, intermediate and advanced levels of training.

The programme follows the core curriculum, and also incorporates ultrasound training. Once you progress into advanced training, you’ll start to develop the specific skills needed for the areas in which you wish to practice as a consultant.

The core curriculum is made up of 19 modules, plus 2 basic ultrasound modules. The curriculum is divided into modules for ease of reference; it’s not intended that you’ll complete modules in isolation. Instead, you’ll acquire skills at different times depending on the opportunities within each clinical post.

Once you progress into advanced training, you’ll need to complete at least 2 ATSMs or subspecialty training. Training opportunities at Surrey & Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust include Joint Obstetric Training, Protected Scan Training
