Training in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology has changed and Training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology has been written as a result of this. The content closely follows the curriculum for the Foundation Years and Membership Examination of the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (MRCOG) and reflects the curriculum in a clear and concise style.
Using easy to read double-page spreads, and packed with images and diagrams, Training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is a new type of trainee textbook. A novel section on professional skills covers a wide range of issues that will add quality to practice and the text covers the basic knowledge, skills and attitudes required for training in this subspecialty.
Written by both trainees and senior consultants, the information presented is rigorous, accurate and accessible.
