Draft plans for year II of the Collaborative Project of the Ethiopian Society of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ESOG) and the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) were tabled during a meeting among leaders of the thematic areas and project coordinators hosted at ESOG’s Project Office on April 13, 2017. The meeting also saw an addition of a new thematic area focusing on medical ethics.

Now properly deliberated and commented upon by the Ethiopian team, the draft plans are to be taken to the US for further deliberation with the ACOG team, which is expected to happen early in May. Once approved and agreed upon by both sides, the project continues into its second year, which will start in September.

The ESOG-ACOG collaborative project was launched in June, 2016 with the objective of addressing four thematic areas: Resident Ship, Continuing Medical Education (CME), Journal Development, Certification and Accreditation, E-learning, Resource Center, PR & Communication and Leadership Development.  The thematic areas t be addressed added yet another area, Medical Ethics.
