MD 720. Clinical Gynecology and Obstetrics

Six weeks. Application Phase. Credit, 6 hours. This six-week clerkship is divided into rotations in labor and delivery, gynecology, and outpatient experience. Students are involved in all aspects of patient care. They are responsible for making rounds and writing notes under the supervision of the house staff, attending assigned clinics, and participating in the activities of the operating and delivery rooms.

In addition to this clinical experience, there is a structured didactic curriculum that includes departmental weekly conferences, skills practicum, lectures, debates, and web based instruction. The final grade in the clerkship is based on clinical performance evaluations, a debate presentation, an oral evaluation, a standardized written examination, and the National Board subject exam.

Elective Opportunities

A number of courses are available for directed study of complications of pregnancy, labor and delivery, approaches to fertility control, gynecologic surgery, general obstetrics and gynecology, reproductive rights, ethical and social issues relevant to the medical care of women, and emerging research in the field of women's health.
