Abstract

The specialist training system in Obstetrics and Gynaecology is defined by the instructions, rules and recommendations of the European Board and College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (EBCOG). This article reviews the basic process and tools in evaluating the competence of the trainees during their training period. It pays special attention to the quality aspects which should be achieved before the trainee’s performance is approved at a specialist level.
