CREOG Quiz Information


Letter to Residents

I wish to bring to your attention the CREOG resident quiz series, which is posted on the CREOG web site. Each exercise begins with a visual image or clinical scenario. The reader then is presented with 3-5 multiple-choice questions, followed by a list of the correct answers and a short summary paragraph and supporting reference. Each quiz can be completed within 10 minutes. I believe that you will find this quiz series to be of immediate practical value in learning basic concepts in obstetrics and gynecology.

To access the quizzes, log onto the ACOG web site using your member number. Once you are on the front page of the ACOG web site, simply scroll to the bottom right-hand side of the page and click on "CREOG." The CREOG front page then will appear, and you will gain access to the quiz series by clicking on the menu bar on the left side of the screen.

I welcome your suggestions for improving this series, and I sincerely hope that you find these learning exercises of value.


The Education Committee of the Council for Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG) has developed a new self-assessment tool for residents' the CREOG Clinical Quiz. Each case contains an image and set of multiple-choice questions. The answers will be provided along with a discussion and references. Initially, cases were posted for a period of time, removed and replaced by new cases. However, due to the tremendous interest in the quiz items, CREOG has decided to continue to have all items available. In addition, it was decided to catelog the quiz items by educational objectives. To view quiz items by objectives, click here for a listing of quizzes by subject area.

Instructions to Authors
The CREOG Education Committee welcomes submission of new quiz items from faculty and residents. Each quiz should be based upon a distinctive visual image, e.g., a fetal heart rate tracing, sonogram, photomicrograph, urodynamic tracing, karyotype, gross pathology specimen. Please prepare a short clinical scenario to introduce the image, followed by one to three multiple-choice questions. The questions should be type-A (select the one best answer). There should be one correct answer and three or four plausible distractors. Please do not write true-false questions or K-type questions (a and c are correct; a, b, c are correct; b and d are correct; only d is correct). Please indicate the correct answer to each question and then present a short summary (one paragraph) that explains the correct answer. Please also list one current reference, preferably published in the last five years that supports your answers.

Please submit your quiz items to me by email. Your visual image may be a hard-copy, glossy photograph, or a digital image transmitted electronically. I will review your submission, edit it for format, and then forward it to the CREOG office for posting on the website. Once this quiz is published, it becomes the property of CREOG. Authors of the quizzes will be acknowledged on the introductory page of the quiz website. You may also cite the publication on your Curriculum Vitae (Example: Smith J. Cystic teratoma. CREOG Resident Quiz Series, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, Washington, DC 2004).

Please send your submissions to me at: . Thank you very much for your assistance with this important educational project.
