Obstetrics and Gynecology Core Clinical Clerkship

Welcome to your Obstetrics and Gynecology Core Clinical Clerkship! Obstetrics and Gynecology is an exciting and unique field of medicine! In the span of one day, you may perform a surgery, deliver a baby, evaluate an elderly woman with ovarian cancer, and counsel a 15 year-old about prevention of pregnancy and sexually-transmitted infections. Obstetrics and gynecology offers breadth within the focus of women's health care. Over the next five weeks, you will experience many sides to women's health care that you may not have even known about.

OB/GYN also offers many subspecialties including Maternal Fetal Medicine, Minimally Invasive Surgery, Urogynecology and Pelvic Reconstruction, Gynecologic Oncology, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility.

The department of OB/GYN has instituted the use of SAKAI for the OBO3001 Clerkship Course. All information can be found on SAKAI
