RANZCOG will rename its diploma and advanced diploma qualifications after a surprise crackdown from the federal education watchdog.

The diplomas are mostly for GPs and rural generalists who undertake six or 12 months of hospital-based training in antenatal care and delivering babies, including emergency C-sections for the advanced diploma.
