Regional Teaching (South East)

Local postgraduate teaching sessions are delivered in each region for Obstetrics and Gynaecology trainees throughout Scotland. During the Covid pandemic, the sessions have been running virtually via MS Teams. This is likely to change to a hybrid option in the coming months, with some face-to-face teaching starting to take place. If the session is virtual, those running the session will welcome trainees from other regions – please contact the organiser for more information.
