Reregistration of gynaecologists in South Africa - results of a 1-year trial run.
Evaluation of an Australian system of reregistration with recommendations for a possible future South African system.
Cohort descriptive study.
Gynaecologists from both private and full-time academic practices.
One hundred and eighty volunteers participated for a period of 1 year.
Each participant had to obtain a minimum of 25 points and an additional subminimum in at least two of the following practice-related categories : audit, continuing medical education (CME), self-study and research or tuition.
Compliance with the rules of the system and participants'comments.
Ten of the 180 volunteers withdrew from the study.
Only 42% of the remaining 170 participants returned their logbooks and a mere 32% their self-study questionnaires.
The majority were in favour of self-study programmes or CME as future methods of reregistration.
A future system of reregistration must be based on self-study programmes and a well-structured and relevant CME curriculum.
