What is SCTA?

The SCTA is the Standing Committee on Training and Assessment. The SCTA develops the training
programme and portfolio for postgraduate training in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. Recently, a
revision of the training programme for postgraduate training was completed, i.e. PACT curriculum. It
has been formally approved by the UEMS Council in April 2018.


When aiming for the highest possible standards in training, besides the training curriculum a
programme for quality assessment is needed as well as a programme for faculty development (Train
the trainers). The SCTA, SCTR and TTT are currently aligning their programmes for this purpose.
The SCTA works together with the European Network of Trainees in Obstetrics and Gynaecology
(ENTOG), the four subspecialty societies ESHRE, EAPM, ESGO, and EUGA, as well with the special
interest societies ESC, ESGE, EFC, EURAPAG and ISPOG.
