Our clerkship is designed to introduce medical students to the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology, providing them with the basic knowledge, skills and attitudes every physician should possess, regardless of future specialty choice. This clerkship is an intensive six weeks designed to provide medical students with a comprehensive background regarding women’s health, allowing them to obtain the skills necessary to manage routine obstetric and gynecologic problems during their careers regardless of specialty choice.
Our clerkship strives to ensure each student is actively involved in the management of our patients, providing them essential practical experience. Our clerkship is fast-paced and provides students with many opportunities to scrub in on many gynecologic surgeries, both inpatient and outpatient. Students are also able to assist in vaginal and cesarean deliveries.
Students are invited to attend our Wednesday Conferences held by our residency program. Students also gain fundamental knowledge from weekly lectures presented by our faculty from all Obstetrics and Gynecology subspecialties.
Students will spend their six weeks at one of our hospital locations.
Our teaching is done by a combination of resident physicians, full-time faculty members, volunteer faculty members, and members of the nursing staff, all of whom are excited to help mold the next generation of physicians.
Students will attend outpatient clinics throughout the six weeks. At these clinics they gain valuable experience learning the female examination, participating in prenatal care and other various women’s health issues including contraception counseling and diagnosis and management of sexually transmitted diseases.
