The Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology is a small and friendly unit that is embedded within Addenbrooke’s hospital. Research undertaken in our Department includes both clinical trials as well as translational basic research projects.
Obstetrics and Gynaecology is primarily a post-graduate discipline. However the Department is very involved in teaching undergraduate medical students who all receive Obstetric and Gynaecology experience through their placements in hospitals and in the community. We are keen to encourage doctors and researchers to go on to specialise in Obstetrics or Gynaecology and there are opportunities for undergraduates, clinicians and post-graduate researchers to work with us.
You can find out more about courses and the experience of studying at the University of Cambridge by visiting the Study at Cambridge site, where the undergraduate and graduate prospectuses are.
The Clinical Academic Office provides extensive information for clinicians on developing their training.

Cambridge University Obstetrics & Gynaecology Society (CUOGS)
CUOGS is run by clinical medical students, with the support of Addenbrookes senior obstetricians and gynaecologists.
The aims are to provide recourses; career advice and learning opportunities.
Each year the Society holds a CUGOS national conference.
Cambridge Black Medics Society
Formed by a team of current and past Cambridge medics, Cambridge Black Medics Society (CBMS) strives to address racial equality in the medical profession through our 3 veins:
1. By working closely with the Clinical School and medical departments to diversify medical education and make it more inclusive of the range of patients we will encounter.
2. By connecting past, current and prospective Cambridge medics with lecture evenings, socials and conferences held throughout the year.
3. By providing academic and pastoral guidance for our members who are current medical students at Cambridge.
