2017 SASGOG Resident Reports

SASGOG was excited to sponsor five Resident Reporters at the SASGOG Annual Meeting and ACOG Scientific Session in San Diego California in May 2017. These five young resident physicians represent the future of SASGOG as they begin their careers as academic specialists in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Through a generous grant from Hologic, the Resident Reporters attended the full day of the SASGOG Annual Meeting, where they actively participated in many interactive sessions. As part of their commitment to the program, each Reporter wrote a short essay related to the meeting’s theme of Academic Generalists Providing Comprehensive Women’s Health Care. We are pleased to post these essays on the SASGOG website, where they may spark interest in other residents who are considering careers as academic generalists and all that SASGOG has to offer them. Please take a few moments to read the reflections of the 2017 Reporters and share them.

ACOG is expanding the membership of its two Practice Bulletin Committees and has identified the value of having a SASGOG Member serve on each Committee. Specifically, ACOG is seeking a specialist in general OB/GYN with background/experience/expertise in research methodology. The SASGOG member will work with other Committee members to implement the GRADE approach for appraising the strength of evidence and certainty of recommendations in the ACOG practice bulletins. 

SASGOG encourages members for one or both of these positions. A nominating committee of SASGOG Board members familiar with the work involved will review the applications and send a list of 2-3 nominees for the OB Practice Bulletin Committee and 2-3 nominees for the GYN Practice Bulletin Committee. Committee service would begin in May 2018.
