Research Skills For Obstetrics and Gynaecology
Are you a medical student who is interested in developing their research skills?
The British Undergraduate Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (BUSOG) are hosting a week-long interactive course during summer 2021 to introduce undergraduates to research skills in a practical and interactive manner with a focus on women’s health.
The course is aimed at medical students with little-no experience in research, but applications are open to any medical student currently studying in the UK.
This week-long course involves morning workshops and afternoon small group sessions. You will work with the same group all week, facilitated by a senior, to learn skills to allow you to produce a research project proposal. Our Saturday presentation morning will give you the chance to win prizes for these proposals.
Sessions will be hosted on Zoom. Communication will be facilitated with the messaging service Slack.
Applications for course participants are open now: https://forms.gle/GHFoWmA1rTPb7pJL7
DEADLINE 20th JUNE 11.59pm
Places are limited to 30 for this pilot year.
For those who are accepted we are charging a small fee of £10 per person to cover running costs, with any profits being donated to our charity partner, Target Ovarian Cancer

The BUSOG webinar series proudly presents our next session, organised in collaboration with our pre-specialty ambassadors! Medical ethics is a very important topic for all healthcare professionals and the obstetrician can be faced with many difficult situations where decision making is not straightforward. This webinar will focus on the ethical scenarios that are commonly discussed in reproductive medicine, with a talk from an expert in the field (to be announced!).
Expect interactions and a chance to voice your opinions in discussions. Don’t be intimidated though – we are encouraging people to think about these difficult questions rather than come to a solution. This webinar is open to everyone but sign up will be limited and allocated on a first come first serve basis. Follow this space for more details to come!
