NFYOG was founded in 2002 as a trainee subgroup to NFOG.
It is an association consisting of the national societies FUGO (Norway), OGU (Sweden), FYGO (Denmark), EGO (Finland) and NFK (Iceland), which organizes trainees in obstetrics and gynecology. The NFYOG board consists of two representatives from each national society. The board meets 2-3 times annually, and the responsibility to host these meetings rotates between the Nordic countries. The financing of the association is based solely on contributions from NFOG.
The purpose of the association is to be inspired and to exchange experiences in matters relating to training, and as such improve trainee education. Through discussions and the sharing of knowledge, we strive to harmonize the education in the different countries, and to make Nordic trainee educations the best in the world. You will find our statues and board minutes here, as well as links to all national societies.
We want all Nordic trainees to have access to national guidelines, logbooks and learning material. We would also like to enhance global focus amongst young doctors, simplify the overseas placement process, and to contribute to the sharing of knowledge and
experiences outside the Nordic countries. By gathering stories from Nordic gynaecologists who worked abroad during their trainee period and publishing their experiences on our website, we wish to inspire young colleagues to spend time abroad.
NFYOG is also responsible for arranging a trainee dinner during the NFOG congress. This year the congress will be held in Odense, where we are planning a relaxed get-together Monday evening.
We are happy receive comments and thoughts on our current work, and ideas on future projects and matters.
