The Fallopian tube has until recently been a neglected structure, bypassed by IVF and seen only as a tube that transports the egg to the uterus. More recently, its central role as the site of fertilization and early embryogenesis has been recognized, along with the major effects of tubal disease, such as chlamydia trachomatis, on fertility. Tubal surgery is an option for those women who avoid IVF because of anxiety about medication side-effects or for religious reasons. The tube is also the site for female sterilization and its reversal. This definitive guide to the Fallopian tube and its disorders collates all these topics, with authoritative text covering the spectrum of clinically relevant topics in a digestible fashion. It will be of interest to gynecologists, specialists in reproductive medicine and infertility and family planning, and others with interest in this fascinating and underestimated organ of reproduction.
Modern professional practice, be it in medicine, law, education or accountancy requires evidence of attainment of competence. We need to demonstrate to our patients, customers, clients and colleagues that we are who we say we are and that we are capable of delivering a high-quality service in our chosen field. Paper qualifications have never carried more weight, nor been regarded more highly than in the cynical world of the 21st century. The corollary to this statement is that the qualifications themselves must only be awarded after a comprehensive and rigorous assessment of the knowledge of the candidate. This pressure for validation of quality has driven the RCOG to perform radical surgery on its examinations, both for the Membership and the Diploma of this College. Much has been learned from educational theory and from the format and structure of other examinations both within and outside the world of medicine. Some of the changes have been driven by wider manipulations of the structure of medical training in UK, for example the move away from 6-month attachments in obstetrics and gynaecology at senior house officer level for the majority of aspiring GPs. However, there is a higher motivation to the process of change within the RCOG's examinations, namely to make our processes more fair, more transparent and more ‘fit for purpose’ for the next decade. The role of the GP in women's health has moved a long distance from the provision of home delivery towards a more team-based and holistic model of care.
