ENTOG One2One Exchange

ENTOG – European Network of Trainees in Obstetrics and Gynaecology launches an exciting project for trainees to facilitate and take part in international exchange all year round!


One2One Exchange is an individual exchange based on our annual event, the ENTOG Exchange. It gives trainees the opportunity to get a more in-depth view of the work and life of other trainees.

The rules are simple: we take offers from the hosts who are willing to invite a colleague from abroad for 1-4 weeks. The visitor is supposed to assist the host in their daily work in the hospital and observe the differences between the two systems of healthcare. Usually the host also offers accommodation but it is not mandatory. The offers are available on the ENTOG website. If a trainee is interested, they can send a message to a selected host via ENTOG. The visitor can offer the host an invitation to their department in exchange. Then, the host and the visitor negotiate the conditions and requirements of visiting one another. Once the exchange is completed, a certificate will be issued by the ENTOG Executive (for both, the host and the visitor).

Review of a host:
"My experience with One2One Exchange completely exceeded expectations. I received 2 trainees from Romania! They basically slept in my couch for 3 weeks, while accompanying me in my professional responsibilities. But it was so much more then that! We shared so many residency stories, so much advise from each other, so many worries about the future... We really connected in a professional and personal level! And I loved having them around, operating with them and talking thru night shifts. We even planed some projects together, so we can continue to meet and work together in the future. A true enriching experience, for sure! I hope to see them soon! and... I can't wait to host again!"

  • Description: Hello! I am a Specialist Registrar based at the Our Lady of Lourdes Drogheda this year. Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital is an RCSI university teaching hospital about 40 minutes from Dublin International Airport and has an annual delivery rate of around 3000 babies. With its wide catchment area, the hospital sees a variety of interesting Obstetrics & Gynaecology cases in our clinics and surgical cases. My consultants and colleagues are a friendly and collegial bunch of people; making this a lovely environment to learn! I am currently living in a large 2-bedroom apartment within walking distance to the hospital; so there is a room to spare (although it is used as an office by my partner during weekdays). If you would like to stay somewhere else, I am happy to assist you in finding another accommodation during your stay. Drogheda sits midpoint between Dublin; the capital city of Ireland and Northern Ireland, so it is easy to explore Dublin or even venture up to Northern Ireland as other Irish wonders around the country with Drogheda as your base. It is also a short drive to Newgrange; an exceptionally grand prehistoric monument that is older than Stonehenge and the Egyptian pyramids!
