Dear Sir / Madam,

It is our pleasure to announce that the Federation of Obstetric and Gynecological Societies of India (FOGSI) will be organizing the FOGSI Intensive Preparatory Course for Postgraduate Examinations at various locations across the country.

General guidelines

  • The aim of the course is to allow postgraduates to sharpen their exam skills. They should participate freely and drive the discussion.
  • The emphasis is on discussion, interaction and exam based learning. Didactic lectures should be kept to a minimum.
  • A pool of at least ten exam going postgraduate students should be prepared locally.
  • Each session should be assigned to one or two postgraduate students and two or three faculty members (examiners).
  • Two national faculty members will be assigned per course. The national faculty will generally be a postgraduate teacher with experience in conducting postgraduate examinations.
  • At least eight local faculty members should participate in the program so that students are exposed to a variety of examination styles and processes.

For case sessions:

  • 40 min – case presentation, discussion and questions
  • 10 min – PowerPoint by the faculty highlighting the salient points (not more than 10 slides)
  • 10 min – questions from the audience
