Abstract

Pelvic floor dysfunction (PFD) in women is common and often distressing to those affected. Urogynaecology is a relatively new subspeciality internationally that aims to improve the quality of care of women with pelvic floor disorders. The College of Urologists of South Africa has, since 2020, started offering a subspeciality certificate in urogynaecology for urologists. In this article, this new training opportunity is discussed by the first urologist undertaking formal subspecialist training in South Africa.
