A physician specializing in obstetrics or gynecology often is considered a woman’s primary care provider, and with this in mind, students are encouraged to learn not only obstetrics and gynecology, but women's health in general. During the six-week clerkship, most students will encounter a multitude of clinical problems in both the inpatient and outpatient setting. Didactic sessions incorporating lectures and case-based learning accompany the clinical rotation.
The clerkship includes labor and delivery, gynecologic surgery and outpatient clinics, as well as EBM cases, and two standardized patient experiences. Students will be assigned to either the University Hospital or one of our partner sites (St Joseph Hospital) for the clinical portion of this six-week rotation.
The clerkship coordinator will communicate where to report on your first day and will have all of the information about your schedule for the next six weeks.
Please direct your questions or concerns to the OBGYN Clerkship Coordinator, Erin Wal.
