The purpose of the Examination is to determine if the candidate demonstrates the minimum level of knowledge recognised by the EBCOG Examination Committee.
The EBCOG Examination assesses the knowledge gained by the candidates during their training in general Obstetrics and Gynaecology. The assessment is extended to the application of this knowledge to clinical cases and is based on the EBCOG training syllabus.
The EFOG-EBCOG Examination consists of 2 parts:
- Part 1 is a Knowledge Based Assessment (KBA);
- Part 2 is a Clinical Skills Assessment (OSCE);
- Participation is subject to eligibility;
- Part 2 of the examination can only be taken after Part 1 has been passed;
- When both parts of the examination have been passed the certificate of the EFOG-EBCOG will be awarded.
Successful candidates will receive the award of European Fellow of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (EFOG) - EBCOG and may use this title. Passing the exam does not confer or imply a license to practice obstetrics or gynaecology in any country of Europe or elsewhere, but successful candidates become EBCOG Fellows in Obstetrics and
Gynaecology (EFOG-EBCOG) and will be given a certificate of Fellowship.
The Examination is open to European and non-European Candidates and will be conducted in English. However, the final decision regarding the suitability of candidates is taken by EBCOG Examination Standing Committee after the
assessment of the individual’s qualifications.
