2021-22 Graduate Catalog

OBGN 81204 LIC Clinical Obstetrics and Gynecology

The Obstetrics and Gynecology Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship exposes students to the care of women throughout their life cycle. Beginning with an immersion experience within the hospital and on labor and delivery, students will learn the essential management of women during the labor and delivery process. During this time, students may also have exposure to emergent gynecology admissions and surgeries. After the inpatient block, students will complete their longitudinal experience with an Ob/Gyn physician. Students will experience the care of women in the ambulatory setting, including well woman exams; contraception; work up, evaluation, and treatment of gynecologic conditions; and the care of patients throughout pregnancy and postpartum. They will follow their pregnant panel patients into the hospital for delivery as well as their gynecologic panel patients for gynecologic surgery or emergencies. They may have the chance to follow patients into the sub-specialty services of gynecologic oncology, maternal fetal medicine, pelvic reconstructive surgery, and reproductive endocrinology and infertility. Students will also have an option to visit a family planning clinic.
