The examination and Certification committee of ESOG-ACOG Collaboration Project engaged in the undertaking of the standardization of the national examination is involved in the capacity building of faculty to acquire a strong exam item preparation, skill and knowledge, creation of a standard and secure exam item bank and administration of certification examinations across all the ob-gyn residency programs in Ethiopia.

To this end ESOG examination and certification committee in collaboration with the FMoH have planned to conduct an in-service examination to all ob-gyn specialty training residents to assess the level of residents across the country, evaluate the programs and ultimately create a standard national evaluation method in the future.
This is therefore to kindly request all the ob-gyn specialty training residents in the following universities to register online to be able to sit for the central electronic examination to be held from May 30 - 31, 2018 parallel to the residency matching exam.

We appreciate your understanding
