Letter from the Chairperson 30 July 2004

Dear Colleague,

Amemdments to the Structured Colposcopy Training Programme and Registration

I refer to the “Structured Coploscopy Training Programme and Registration” send out to the O&G fraternity in 2003. The SCCPS have since received valuable feedback and have registered some of your concerns regarding the registration processes and criteria. I am pleased to inform you that after much deliberation between the SCCPS, OGSS and Health Promotion Board, we have taken into consideration some of these concerns and made some amendments to the Training Programme and Registration.

These are :

1.
The minimum number of colposcopies performed over a 2-year period for retention in the Register of Colposcopists has been reduced from 50 cases to 30 cases.
2.

The 2-yearly register maintenance fee of $50 has been waived.

3.

3. The closing date for the grandfather clause for specialists registered by the SAB (Specialists Accreditation Board) before March 2003, has been extended from 31 March 2004 to 31 December 2004.

Albeit the registration date has been extended to end 2004, please register as soon as possible if you haven’t done so. This is because the very first List of Registered Colposcopists will be published in the SCCPS website to coincide with the launch of the Cervical Screen Singapore on 16 August 2004.

Yours sincerely



Dr Adelina Wong
Chairperson
Colposcopy Registration Committee
