The Obstetrics and Gynecology clerkship is an 8-week rotation divided into four parts: Delivery Suite, Gynecology, Obstetrics and Keserwan Medical Center block. Medical students are exposed to the basic principles of caring for obstetrics and gynecology patients. They will learn how to take a thorough gynecologic and obstetric history and perform a complete and adequate pelvic examination. They will participate in both vaginal deliveries and cesarean sections as well as a variety of gynecologic procedures where they will be exposed to common gynecologic disease entities. Students will also learn from a series of didactic lectures covering various high yield topics in both obstetrics and gynecology, as well as from daily morning reports and case discussions held with residents and attending physicians. At the end of the rotation, practical and theoretical assessments are performed.
