The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists partners with Cambridge University Press to advance women’s healthcare

The Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists and Cambridge University Press logosThe Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (RCOG) has sold its publishing list to us in a move to advance the quality of care for women worldwide.

In a move that will benefit women’s lives in the UK and around the world, we will take over publication of all the RCOG’s current medical book titles. Together we will begin working to expand this list to offer a wider range of learning to all healthcare professionals in women’s health.

The list, which will be published under joint Cambridge-RCOG branding, will build on our existing titles in reproductive medicine and maternal-fetal medicine, and expand our offering to trainees in obstetrics and gynaecology.

The partnership will help the RCOG to pursue its mission to improve the lives of women in developing countries. The RCOG has long provided expertise to medical professionals in the UK and Commonwealth countries and is keen to extend its reach to help doctors, midwives and nurses around the world. Cambridge offers RCOG the perfect launch-pad for making medical publishing available to students and professionals globally.

RCOG President, Dr Tony Falconer said:

“We are looking forward to working in partnership with Cambridge University Press as they expand their obstetrics and gynaecology list, to cater to everyone caring for women and to achieve cross-over into other specialties, such as general practice and mental health.

“The end goal for us both is very simple – to combine the RCOG’s expertise in medicine and Cambridge’s expertise in publishing to raise the standard of care for women all over the world.”

Cambridge University Press Chief Executive, Peter Phillips, commented:

“We are excited about the huge opportunities that our partnership with the RCOG makes possible through our joint commitment to excellence in medical publishing.”
