ENTOG-TSOG Short Term Fellowship to Antalya, Turkey

The fellowships are offered in collaboration with the Turkish Society in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (TSOG). The 10 candidates have been elected and come from France, Greece, Latvia, Lithuania, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Slovakia and the United Kingdom.
Congratulations to the 10 candidates. We are looking forward to meeting you in Antalya.
Three executive posts up for election

At the ENTOG council on 3 June 2017 three executive member posts are up for election; the post as president, the post as secretary general and a post as member. Executive member Agnieszka Horala will be running for president. Bids for all three executive posts are welcome.
As a member of the ENTOG executive you become part of a five person international team. We meet 1-2 times annually in person and have monthly skype meetings. We represent the interest of the trainees in the EBCOG committees and thus attend their meetings in Brussels. And we attend the EBCOG hospital visits across Europe as trainee visitors. Expect to travel approximately 5-8 times annually. As in any executive it does take some work. But ENTOG is a unique opportunity to network internationally, make fantastic friends, learn about training across Europe and assist in improving and harmonizing training across Europe. In the ENTOG executive we have great fun together.
Interested colleagues are kindly invited to send their letter of interest including a CV to the current executive ( before the council. Please feel free to get in touch with any of the executive members for more information on what the executive work involves.
EBCOG fellowship 2017
We are pleased to announce that ENTOG and EBCOG have awarded two fellowships in 2017. Congratulations to Auni Lindgren from Finland and Murat Yassa from Turkey. We wish the winners all the best for their fellowships.
European Curriculum
EBCOG is in the process of developing a pan-European training curriculum in Obstetrics & Gynaecology. All the national trainee societies were in 2016 invited to participate in a Delphi procedure to reach consensus regarding the content of the curriculum by answering two rounds of a survey. I am proud to share with you that 33% of the respondents of the surveys were trainees. Thank you for your engagement and support.
In November 2016 the entire ENTOG executive attended a curriculum meeting where the medical content of the curriculum was discussed. It was important to ENTOG that the trainees were well represented in the discussion. ENTOG continues to work closely with EBCOG in the process of making the curriculum and we will keep you updated about the progress.
 Russian fellowship
ENTOG has received a unique offer from the Russian Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists and the Research Center for Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology, Moscow, Russia.
They are offering trainees from across Europe to visit the Research Center for Obstetrics, Gynecology and Perinatology in Moscow, Russia ( Visits will be arranged independently and will have a duration of up to four weeks within the year 2017.
