Nordic trainee exchange in Denmark 2018

Nordic trainee exchange in Denmark

We are delighted to invite you to a two-day exchange program for trainees in Obstetrics and Gynecology on the 7th and 8th of June 2018 in Denmark.

The exchange will be held prior to the NFOG Congress in Odense (, which takes place from the 10th to 13th of June 2018. Hospitals participating in the exchange program are located in cities all over Denmark.

Denmark has 60.000 births yearly and advanced gynecological practices. Denmark are one of the frontrunners in medical education, and as a trainee in obstetrics and gynecology in Denmark you follow a structured program to ensure sufficient skills. We are looking forward to interesting discussions on similarities and differences between our countries.


Arrive at your local host on Wednesday evening the 6th of June. Thursday and Friday the 7th and 8th you will spend in the ward together with your host or a colleague. The aim is for you to experience a typical day as a young doctor in a Danish obstetric and gynaecological ward. The evenings are for social activities such as sightseeing, restaurants and a Carlsberg. Hopefully you will also get to experience the Danish “smørrebrød”.

Exchange costs

You will stay with your local host Wednesday and Thursday evening (the 6th and 7th of June) in one of the Exchange cities. You will be responsible for your expenses related to food and transportation. From Friday night you will need to find your own accommodation.
