The Obstetrics and Gynecology clerkship is an 8-week rotation divided into three parts (Delivery Suite (DS), Gynecology (GYN) and Obstetrics (OBS)) during which students are exposed to the basic principles of caring for the obstetrics and gynecology patients. Students will take a thorough gynecologic and obstetric history, perform a complete and adequate pelvic examination, take into consideration that gynecologic assessment is an integral part of every woman’s general medical evaluation, establish an effective physician-patient relationship and build core knowledge of the common diseases encountered in obstetrics and gynecology and the way to diagnose and manage them. At the end of the rotation, practical and theoretical assessments are performed.
