Non-RANZCOG Trainees

 Non-RANZCOG Trainees can apply for C-QuIP certification by following the process outlined below.

There are two certification streams:

  • Diagnostic

For those colposcopists who refer patients on for treatment.

  • Therapeutic

For those colposcopists who investigate and perform treatment.

New Applicants (Diagnostic) are required to:

  1. Complete the appropriate Colposcopy Online Learning Program (COLP) within 12 months prior to application for C-QuIP certification.
  2. Provide proof of attendance at an approved Colposcopy Course in the last three years, prior to applying for certification.
  3. Complete a Logbook of 100 colposcopic examinations, 50 of which must be new cases.
  4. Provide a letter of competency signed off by their training supervisor.

New Applicants (Therapeutic):

  1. To be certified as a treating colposcopist, New Applicants should provide evidence of 15 treatments in the preceding three years that have been supervised by a C-QuIP certified practitioner. All treatments must be logged with histology. A treating colposcopist should aim to have histological evidence of high grade changes (punch biopsy and/or loop specimen) in 80% of cases. 
  2. Non-RANZCOG practitioners who wish to perform a surgical procedure need to be credentialed locally.
