A number of clinical fellows and research fellows are also active at the CRG. They are fertility specialists who come to the CRG to specialise in the treatment of infertility, or research into infertility.
Clinical Fellowship for gynaecologists and obstetricians
Since 2008, the CRG has also been certified as a training institute by EBCOG, the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. In 2015 the recognition was extended for five years.
The EBCOG organisation groups specialists in gynaecology and obstetrics in 36 member states. Its aim is to improve the health of women and children by pursuing the highest quality of care in all European countries.
With a view to this, EBCOG supports training in various medical specialities. For reproductive medicine, twelve centres in Europe were awarded an accreditation as a training institute, including the CRG of UZ Brussel.
And in 2012, the CRG installed a ‘clinical fellowship’ in reproductive medicine. Gynaecologists in (other) European countries can come to our centre to improve their medical knowledge about, and skills in, reproductive medicine.
To obtain an EBCOG certificate you need to work at a certified training centre for two years. This is possible at the CRG, but it is important to know that no funds have been earmarked for this training: candidates need to be financially independent.
