EFOG- EBCOG: All you need to know

The European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (EBCOG) is dedicated to advancing women’s and infants’ health by promoting excellence in care standards. With a core emphasis on education and training, EBCOG endeavours to uphold superior healthcare and educational benchmarks across the field of obstetrics and gynaecology throughout Europe.

Candidates’ knowledge and clinical abilities in obstetrics and gynaecology are rigorously assessed through the EFOG tests conducted by the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. In this article, we will provide detailed instructions on the steps necessary to apply for the EFOG-EBCOG exam.

Application process

 Candidates preparing for the Part 1 examination can find comprehensive guidelines for online application submission on the EBCOG website months prior to the exam date. It is important to note that only electronic submissions are accepted; paper applications will not be considered. The first come, first served policy applies to the acceptance of applications. Candidates must confirm that the application was received on time.

EBCOG will not accept applications that are incomplete. Therefore, candidates must make sure that their application is completed accurately and that the necessary supporting documentation has been sent with it.
