Abstract:Falling recruitment to obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) among UK-trained undergraduates is a pressing concern. The reasons for this are multifactorial and include the previous restriction on the number of postgraduate training places. Undergraduate placements are a key time to encourage potential recruits into the specialty. A recent survey demonstrated various changes within medical school attachments over the past 15 years that are having a mixed influence on the undergraduate O&G experience. These are explored in relation to their potential impact on recruitment.
