The six-week Obstetrics and Gynecology Clerkship is an introductory experience in the provision of comprehensive medical care and counseling services to adolescent, adult and elderly female patients.
The obstetrical conditions and gynecological problems commonly encountered by the physician provide the primary focus for this clerkship experience, but knowledge of serious or less common conditions is also shared. Therefore, the basis for the clerkship is to introduce the clinical information thought to be fundamental in the education of all physicians.
Students will have the opportunity to engage in a variety of aspects within obstetrics and gynecology in all stages of life, resulting in a well-rounded experience. Syllabus (PDF).
*For students who are participating in the Rural Health Professions Program Certificate of Distinction, you may experience part/all of your clerkship in a rural community.
