This section includes a guide for trainers and trainees which has been developed to assist training for certification in colposcopy by encouraging standardisation of training and by providing explanation of the various requirements of the curriculum.
The aim of the BSCCP/RCOG colposcopy training programme is to enable trainees to obtain the core knowledge, develop the necessary skills and the personal and professional attributes to enable competency in colposcopy. These competences are listed and comprise basic skills, colposcopic technical skills, practical procedures, the ability to recognise the normal and abnormal cervix, administration and communication skills. This section also includes details of the exit assessment (OSCE), and requirements for trainers and lead trainers.
Any difficulties in understanding or achieving various requirements for training can be discussed with the BSCCP Certification and Training Committee.
