Course Description

Instructor: Tammy Sonn, M.D., 362-3126
All third-year medical students participate in a six-week clinical clerkship in Obstetrics and Gynecology. This is divided into three two-week components of outpatient OB/GYN, inpatient obstetrics and inpatient gynecology. Comprehensive study of the reproductive health needs of women in both the office setting and the surgical setting is the focus of the curriculum. Students are actively involved in all settings of health care delivery: outpatient faculty clinics within all specialties, resident ambulatory clinics, operating rooms for all obstetric or gynecologic cases, inpatient floors of L&D and Gynecology, and in the ED or off-service floors seeing consults. Faculty, fellows, residents, and nurse practitioners provide teaching for this rotation. Student-directed didactics include the faculty and chief resident lecture series, surgical skills session and faculty-assigned preceptor groups that meet throughout their six-week rotation.
