The specialty training programme is a six year run-through training programme commencing at ST1. The curriculum comprises Basic Training for 3 years in Obstetrics and Gynaecology and Sexual and Reproductive Health. Trainees will follow different competencies from O&G trainees which are focused towards medical Gynaecology rather than Labour Ward expertise. Gynaecological competencies will need to be maintained throughout training. The MFSRH Part 1 must be achieved before entering intermediate training. Intermediate training (Years 4 and 5) will extend the strand of Gynaecology and SRH, which will continue to include unplanned pregnancy and Abortion Care, but now also encompass training in Genitourinary Medicine, Public Health, Sexual Assault and Sexual Problems. The MFSRH Part 2 must be achieved before entering advanced training. Advanced Training (Year 6) will be a year of completing all outstanding competencies but with opportunities for shadowing and preparing for a role as a consultant. Throughout the programme the trainee will undergo training in leadership and management. The programme develops the skills required to lead and manage the community based Sexual Health services of the future and lead large multidisciplinary teams.
