Training & Education

We shall soon upload several initiatives onto the website to enhance training and educational opportunities globally for ISOM members. The intent is to provide a resource in various guises for prospective trainees in low and middle income countries as well as developed countries. This section of the website is suitable for posting clinical and research training roles, fellowships,  
PhD opportunities, and career positions relevant to Obstetric Medicine.
This international website will potentially broaden the pool of applicants, provide the opportunity to develop a mentor or scholarship system, and enable better cross-cultural prospects. Promoting  training  opportunities should also add weight to the call for similar programs in countries still developing pathways for training in Obstetric Medicine.


Please contact  Prof Lawrence McMahon if you have a suitable position you wish to post.
