Description:

These courses are designed to expose the advanced student to obstetrics and gynecology in a community hospital setting. The student will be responsible in obstetrics for the management of antepartum and postpartum cases of both routine and high risk pregnancies. The student will participate actively with a resident and assume responsibility commensurate with an advanced elective course. The physiology of labor and delivery will be stressed. The gynecology component will include the full time activities of an active community hospital gynecologist. This will include experience in the office, in the outpatient setting of the hospital, the inpatient setting, and operating room. There is a possibility for individualized course directives to meet student interests to include such topics as general gynecology, urogynecology, and gynecologic oncology. This interest should be discussed with the program director at each individual location.
