Obstetrics & Gynaecology is now so diverse that a series of ATSMs have been designed to enhance the skills required by future Consultants.  Trainees will be expected to complete a minimum of two ATSMs during the two year period (ST6&7) and are asked to regularly check the ATSM page on the College website for the most up-to-date information.  There have been a number of changes to ATSMs that came into effect on 1st August 2011 and these are detailed here.
