ABOG and SGO Collaboration
During the SGO 2023 Annual Meeting on Women’s Cancer in Tampa, FL, a representative from The American Board of Obstetrics & Gynecology (ABOG) will join the SGO Taskforce for Board Certification Support to discuss logistics of the certifying exam as well as the assessment and scoring process. Keep an eye for this session opportunity when registering for the upcoming SGO 2023 Annual Meeting and be sure to sign up if interested in participating.  We will also have three roundtable discussions where participants will meet in small groups with a taskforce facilitator to discuss hypothetical cases and have an opportunity to discuss some of their own cases.
