Abstract Reviewers

We are seeking reviewers to assist us with the abstract reviewing process for the RCOG World Congress 2022, taking place on 13 to 15 June 2022.

With the call for abstracts now distributed, we are in the process of inviting reviewers for the abstract grading process which will take place in February 2022. The closing date for abstract submission is 3 February 2022 with confirmation of abstract acceptance set for March 2022.

We welcome applications from anyone with MRCOG or equivalent and experience of presenting a regional conference or above, particularly those with special interest in the categories available for submission for instance sub-specialty trainees. You should also not currently be removed from the Medical Register in any country or have any conditions applied.

What is required of you?

Abstract reviewers need to be available to review and grade abstracts online via our platform, Oxford Abstracts, between 15 February and 1 March 2022. We will require grading to be completed by midnight on Tuesday 1 March 2022.

We hope to build a pool of reviewers sufficient in number to ensure that, wherever possible, the maximum number of abstracts to be reviewed will be 50 per reviewer. We will aim for each abstract to be reviewed a minimum of twice, ideally three times.

The allocation of abstracts will be based on the areas of interest which you specify when you register via the online reviewing site.

How will reviewers benefit?

In addition to playing a key role in the planning of the 2022 Congress programme, we are pleased to confirm the following entitlements for abstract reviewers:

  • 10% off the early bird full registration fee to attend the Congress
  • CPD points relevant to the framework you are currently following, either via the RCOG or your own institution which manages your CPD programme

How to apply

If this is something you would like to do, please complete the online form by Thursday 23 December 2021.
