History and Mission

When the APGO Corporate Liaison Council was founded in 1985, it became the first of its kind: a collaborating council between industry and the medical education community. It has since become the benchmark for other organizations that are trying to merge these two components to further their missions. The council meets with the APGO Board of Directors twice a year to develop initiatives to ensure a bright and prosperous future for women’s health education and, ultimately, for women.

Established to foster a collegial partnership between industry and the medical education community, the CLC consists of corporate representatives and the APGO Board of Directors who share common goals driven by the following mission:

  • Foster interaction between leaders in obstetrics and gynecology and industry
  • Collaboratively identify, develop and implement educational programs and activities in women’s health care
  • Provide early access to information regarding evolving trends of women’s health education
