RCOG Basic Practical Skills

Introduction

wimat-logo

Approved by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.

The RCOG Basic Practical Skills course (BPS) is designed to introduce trainees to safe surgical techniques and obstetric clinical skills, in a structured workshop environment. The course is standardised to ensure common objectives, content structure and assessment methods are followed and can be linked to the RCOG Training Portfolio and OSATS.

Redesigned in 2014, the new two-day format enables trainees to focus on hands-on skills whilst in the classroom, by introducing pre-course eLearning materials including videos and assessments.  The course also looks at the increasingly important topic of human factors and enhanced recovery principles, complementing the new RCOG curriculum.

The course is intended for trainees ST1-2 and is a mandatory requirement for entry into ST3.

Places on this course are strictly limited to 18 and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Learning Objectives

By attending this course, the trainee is able to:

Spend more time practicing basic operative obstetric and gynaecological skills

Learn about new topics such as Human Factors and Enhanced Recovery pathways

Sign off elements in the RCOG Training Portfolio Logbook and OSATSComplete the mandatory requirements into ST3

Who should attend?

ST1 – ST3

Foundation Years 1 and 2 with an interest in obstetrics and gynaecology

The tutors were very well prepared on their topics/stations, tutors were also very encouraging and helpful with questions

Very good and worth while doing – Thank you!

My next F2 rotation in O and G and the contents of this course will obviously be very useful. Also since I am interested in applying for ST training in O and G this course is very helpful

Very relevant, opportunity to handle equipment and gain experience which can be a difficult job
