A thorough grounding in Colposcopy and cervical diseases

to lead to better health outcomes for women globally

  • For Doctors, Nurses, and Scientists

    The courses are beneficial whether you are a Gynaecologist, Resident, Nurse, Nurse Colposcopist, Cytologist, Pathologist, General or Family Practitioner. The Basic course is aimed at medical and nursing staff who are starting colposcopy and who have had no, or limited, exposure to the technique. Former students work in hospitals, private practices, and community settings including sexual assault or family planning clinics.

  • Fundamentals of Colposcopy, the cervix, HPV, and treatment

    The objective is to provide students with a thorough grounding in colposcopy and the diagnosis of cervical pre-malignancy and early malignancy in women who have been referred with an abnormal cytological smear (or where clinical signs and symptoms have led to the suspicion of early invasive cancer).

  • Accredited by the Norwegian Medical Association (12 hours)

    The Basic Course has been accredited by Den Norske Legeforening for 12 credit hours in postgraduate and continuing training for physicians in O&G. It is also accredited by the British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (BSCCP) for training purposes and can be completed instead of attending a Basic seminar course. It has been approved for colposcopy training by the European Federation for Colposcopy (EFC).

  • Latest techniques in colposcopy and management of cervical and lower genital tract neoplasia

    The Advanced course builds on the Basic course and explores the management of cervical and lower genital tract neoplasia. Members of the Norwegian Medical Association can buy 12 months access for £500 if you have previously bought the Basic Course, or £595 by itself.

Professor Albert Singer

Pioneer of colposcopy in the UK and leader in online colposcopy training

Prof Singer created online colposcopy courses with a team of highly experienced clinicians to enable medical and nursing practitioners with an interest in colposcopy to access world-class training at their convenience. His driving goal is to improve women's health experiences and outcomes globally.

The courses, based on his experience of teaching in-person courses over 3 decades, combine high-quality images, explanatory audio, and case studies with self assessments. Modules are presented by leading experts in their fields. 


He is globally recognised as a pioneer of colposcopy in the UK. He is Professor Emeritus at UCL and holds Honorary Consultant appointments at University College Hospital and the Whittington Hospital in London. He has been training colposcopists worldwide since 1976 and has trained more than 3,000 professionals through courses held at the Whittington and University College Hospitals in central London. Over the last 5 years, Prof Singer has run regular seminars in China, India, Dubai, Japan and many European countries.

Professor Singer has headed up research teams at both his NHS hospitals. His main areas of research are the origins, detection and treatment of cervical and lower genital tract pre cancer, with special interest in HPV. He has authored many papers and books including the authoritative ‘The Cervix‘ with Mr Joe Jordan and ‘Cervical and Lower Genital Tract Precancer‘ with Mr John Monaghan.

Professor Singer is co-founder and trustee for the British Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology and a founding member of the British Gynaecological Cancer Society. He holds a senior visiting research fellowship at the National Institute for Clinical Research in London. Professor Singer is known for his vision, research and experience and is often a reference point, in his private practice, for a second opinion in complex cases.
