Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstruction – Clinical Elective (M4)

Urogynecology, Female Medicine and Pelvic Reconstructive Surgery is a clinical elective course offered to fourth year medical students. During their time on our service, students can expect to evaluate new patients in office with urogynecology practitioners. Students participate in all aspects of surgical management of these patients including preoperative assessment, surgery, and postoperative care. Students are required to orally present selected topic(s) to the urogynecology team along with weekly care reports. Additionally, there are opportunities to critically review peer reviewed publications and attend conference and grand rounds. Students will be given the opportunity to participate in clinical research; however, this is not a requirement.


  • Review normal pelvic anatomy and pelvic floor function and physiology
  • Diagnose and treat pelvic floor disorders
  • Evaluate patients from initial presentation through treatment with surgical or nonsurgical modalities
  • List treatment options for various pelvic floor disorders
  • Use the Pelvic Organ Prolapse Quantification (POP-Q) system
