Volunteer Program


The 2018 Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) of the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RANZCOG) is being held in Adelaide, South Australia from Sunday 16 to Wednesday 19 September 2018.

The Organising Committee is pleased to invite expressions of interest from medical students to participate in the meeting as volunteers.



RANZCOG is the leading standards body responsible for the training and education of specialists and GP Obstetricians in obstetrics and gynaecology (O&G) in Australia and New Zealand.

RANZCOG is committed to the establishment and maintenance of the highest possible standards of practice in women’s health and provides programs in training, accreditation and continuing professional development that are responsive to the evolving health care needs of women. RANZCOG also supports research into women’s health and acts as an advocate for women’s health care, both locally and internationally.

About the Meeting

The Organising Committee is planning an above-and-beyond scientific program.

Sessions will look at the boundaries between the general practitioner and Specialist and Specialist and Sub-specialist. The aim is to promote collaboration and team work for the wellbeing of women.

Volunteer Program

Participation in the Volunteer Program provides some exposure to meeting sessions and the speciality of obstetrics and gynaecology more generally.

Volunteer medical students will undertake certain tasks throughout the duration of the meeting, such as providing directional assistance, running messages and collecting tickets for ticketed sessions.

Volunteers will be required for a minimum half-day commitment; on the day(s) of attendance, students will assist with meeting tasks for half of the day and, if desired, will be provided with a complimentary meeting pass to attend the remainder of the scientific sessions for that day.

Volunteers will be required to wear a volunteer t-shirt while in a volunteer capacity onsite and a briefing session will be held to provide an outline of the roles and responsibilities of volunteers.

Expressions of Interest

Medical students interested in participating in the Volunteer Program should register their interest online by
Friday 29 June 2018.

Please note that there are limited opportunities available, and these will be issued on a first-come first-serve basis.
