The Project of Achieving consensus in training (PACT) is a pan-European project for the development of a harmonised specialist training standard and curriculum in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology.


The project aims to increase the quality of the training of future health professionals in the field of obstetrics and gynaecology, according to the latest insights in medical education, and therefore ensuring optimal healthcare for women and their babies in Europe.
