Mastering the DRCOG directly reflects and fulfils the DRCOG syllabus set by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. Chapters are laid out precisely following the DRCOG syllabus format. Starting with an overall introduction to the exam, Mastering the DRCOG covers the seven core modules of the syllabus:
Basic Clinical Skills
Basic Surgical Skills
Management of Labour and Delivery
Postpartum and Neonatal Problems
Subfertility and Contraception
These modules are then followed by a section of 'hot topics' not specifically mentioned in the syllabus, but of real interest for all those working in the area of women's health. Hot topics include the menopause and its management, abuse of women, and ethical issues such as fetal sex selection and eugenics, egg donation, breast augmentation surgery, and surrogate motherhood.
Mastering the DRCOG is written in a clear and straight-forward style and is illustrated throughout. Written by a newly qualified GP and edited by two highly experienced Consultants, one in Obstetrics and Gynaecology, the other in Community Sexual and Reproductive Health, Mastering the DRCOG is a fantastic resource for all candidates preparing for the Diploma. The book will also be of great value to medical students learning Obstetrics and Gynaecology for the first time, to overseas doctors preparing for the PLAB, and to experienced GPs looking for a refresher.
