The Ethiopian Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ESOG) conducted a pedagogy training at Intercontinental Hotel on August 2-4, 2018. The training was given to program directors, junior faculty members and senior residents from 12 institutions hosting Ob-Gyn departments. Giving the training were experts from the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG).

The training was planned and administered under the Residency Thematic Area of the ESOG-ACOG-CIRHT Collaborative Project. The ESOG-ACOG-CIRHT collaborative project was launched in June, 2016 with the objective of addressing four thematic areas: Resident Ship, CME, Journal and Certification and Accreditation. The thematic areas to be addressed by the collaborative project later added three more areas to its list: IT, PR & Communication and Leadership Development. The issue of medical ethics was added later as yet another focus area of the project.
