Dr. Mala Arora, Chairperson ICOG

Dear colleagues and friends

I am honored to be elected the 13th chairperson of the Indian College of Obstetrics & Gynecology.  ICOG is proud of all its fellows and members who will carry this academic torch forward in the coming years.

The Thrust in 2017 will be on Teaching &Learning. “Learning is the only treasure that will follow its owner everywhere”. Chinese proverb. Towards this goal we are developing the following tools:-

  1. E news –letter on a theme subject containing a journal scan and quiz section. Correct answers to quiz will fetch you credit points.
  2. Webinars on theme topics every month.
  3. GCPR development for the website.
  4. Safety Checklists for the practitioners.
  5. Surgical skill enhancing ICOG tube videos on the website. Contribution of video that is selected for the website will earn you credit points.
  6. Teaching modules on women’s health for General Practitioners in partnership with Indian Medical Association and Public Health Foundation of India.

We are organizing a National ICOG-FOGSI Conference on Critical Care with Live Skill Stations, at Indore on 23rd 24th of September 2017.

MORE CREDIT POINTS can be earned towards FICOG

All fellows can now claim credit points for

  • Books edited
  • Book chapter & review articles
  • Publishing a paper
  • Correct answers for e news-letter quiz

The names of maximum credit point earners will be displayed for a month on the ICOG website & an ICOG certificate will be awarded for earning 100 credit points in a year.

The most important vision of the college is to help raise the standards of education and practice in our country.

In order to further Research and Publication, I propose that ICOG would act as a liasoning body. It will liase fellows guides whose PG thesis are on similar topics so that data may be pooled and meaningful original research papers be published in our journals.  All you need to do as a PG guide is to send a list of your PG thesis topics to the fogsi office, ICOG secretary at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and she will be able to put you in touch with other PG guides working on the same subject.

Let us not forget that we belong to a land of achievers from times immemorial, like Patanjali, Sushruta, CV Raman, JC Bose, Ramanujam and more recently Dr APJ Abdul Kalam whose contributions to their respective fields have left a global indelible mark. Let us also strive together to take our college to greater heights.


Jai Hind.

Dr. Mala Arora
Chairperson, ICOG (2017 – 18)
