An overview is given on the scientific education of the Trainees (Specialists in Training in Europe). European legislation is clear and insists on the scientific formation in the undergraduate as well as in the Postgraduate education. It is the task of the national (or regional) authorities to create possibilities for research during clinical training. In most of the national training programmes Research activities are included. Moreover in the European visiting system Research facilities are an important item. Examples are shown how the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (U.K.) and the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology have implemented these Research activities in the training programme.
