  1. Reregistration of gynaecologists in South Africa : the profession's opinion.

    Article - En anglais

    Objective

    Testing of the profession's opinions and attitudes with regard to a possible reregistration system.

    Methods

    A questionnaire was sent to all the gynaecologists in South Africa to test their opinions and attitudes with regard to reregistration.

    Results

    After two mailings, 62,4% of the 603 gynaecologists had responded.

    Seventy per cent of the respondents were in private practice while 19% were in full-time academic positions.

    More than two-thirds (68%) of the respondents resided in a city, close to a medical school.

    Although 74% were in favour of the implementation of a reregistration system, only 56% were enthusiastic about it.

    Congress attendance and self-study programmes were the categories in which more than 85% of the respondents would be able to earn points.

    The general feeling was that such a system should be governed by the profession.

    Conclusions

    The profession was in favour of a system of reregistration, but great concern was expressed at the contents of such a programme and the manner in which it would be governed.
