What’s OGRM? It’s a medical journal and the abbreviation means – Obstetrics and Gynaecology Reproductive Medicine. It was previously known as ‘Current‘, or was it something else? Well, I’m not sure on that. 😉
There is NO hard and fixed rule when it comes to reading OGRM.
I have read many a topic in it because the explanations were clearer to understand and easier to retain. If you would find an alternate source for the same topic, that would do too.
OGRM is NOT a must syllabus for MRCOG.
In my opinion, RCOG gives more emphasis on NICE & TOG for questions among the three. Any discrepancy in facts such as percentages, take the other source in preference to OGRM.
I read OGRM more extensively for the sake of tackling essay questions needed for my Master’s exam. They present facts in a systematic fashion. You may utilise this if you are attempting any other O & G exam.
Remember that OGRM publishes the same topic every 2 to 3 years with modification and new data. Mostly by the same author or one of the author might be different if it was done by more than one. So make sure you read topics for latest editions.
You might notice there are topics overlapping in TOG, OGRM and NICE other than guidelines and text books. That’s because I have referred more than one source to make my notes for a single topic.
My next blog post will tell you the topics I read in OGRM, so stay tuned!
p.s: let me know if you have any questions on this.
