Welcome to the home pages of The Finnish Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

The Finnish Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (SGY) was founded by Professor Seth Wichmann, together with eight other gynaecologists working at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Helsinki University Hospital. This took place in 1928. By 2015 the number of members has grown and exceeds now 1200.

The society communicates with many national and international organisations within the disciplines of perinatology, ultrasound, endocrinology and infertility, oncology , urogynecology and gynecological surgery.

The Finnish Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology is a member of the international organisations FIGO, EBCOG, UEMS, NFOG and IFFS.

The society organises annually two educational meetings for members: one in the spring and the other in the autumn, traditionally in November. The November meeting is also the official annual meeting of The Finnish Society of Obstetrics and Gynaecology. In addition to these general meetings, the society organises smaller meetings for perinatologists, urogynaecologists, infertility specialists and gynaecological oncologists. Seminars for colleagues dedicated to or interested in research, administration and education take place every 2 – 3 years.

The most recent addition to the subgroups working within the society is the one for trainees in gynaecology and obstetrics (EGO), which organises courses twice per year. This training programme rotates every three years.
