Medical StudentObjectives for Obstetrics and Gynecology Clerkship

These objectives outline the minimum knowledge of women's health care that we expect no matter what your future field will be. Within the bounds of available time and these objectives, you can decide to emphasize different aspects of the course, i.e. if you're going into radiology you may want to concentrate on ultrasounds, or if you're interested in cardiology you may want to concentrate more on the way pregnancy affects the heart or on diagnosis of congenital heart defects. You will have opportunities to pursue special interests in presentations among the students and for your teams.

Success on this rotation depends on good communication with your team. The schedule is complex. Let your teams know what interests you, and let them know where you are and what you are doing if it varies from your schedule. Don't tell your team what doesn't interest you.
