Call for Pearls of Exxcellence Authors

SASGOG is seeking authors for the following new Pearls of Exxcellence:

• Ultrasound markers for Down Syndrome
• Evaluation of preeclampsia

Office Practice
• Abnormal bleeding in an adolescent (pubertal menorrhagia)

• Hysteroscopic bowel injury
• Management of borderline ovarian tumors in young, nulliparous women

Each Pearl needs to have an author that has been a Board examiner for at least two years. Potential authors who have not satisfied the two year examiner requirement are invited to co-author, but will need to pair with a second author who meets the qualifications and can serve as mentor. The Editorial Board can assist authors in finding an appropriate mentor if one is not available to you. The mentor is responsible for content, quality, and meeting the assigned deadline. All authors must be certified by ABOG and be members of SASGOG.

If you are not familiar with the Pearls, the existing library can be found here.

If you are interested in contributing (or have questions), please email pearls@SASGOG.org by
July 3. Prospective authors should send the following information:

  • Brief summary of prior writing experience
