Recruitment Update: From 6th October 2019 we have been advised that all medical practitioners will be on the shortage occupation list in the UK which means that medical applicants will be exempt from the Resident Labour Market Test (RLMT). 

The specialty training programme is a six-year run-through training programme commencing at ST1.  

The curriculum comprises Basic Training for 3 years in Gynaecology and Basic Obstetric Training, Sexual and Reproductive Health and Genitourinary medicine. Trainees will follow different competencies from O&G trainees which are focused towards Medical Gynaecology rather than Labour Ward expertise.  

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 includes unplanned pregnancy and Abortion Care, and encompass training in Teaching Skills, Public Health, and Sexual Assault and Sexual Problems. Gynaecological competencies will need to be maintained throughout this phase of training  

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.
