This clerkship offers the opportunity to experience a ?real life? obstetrics and gynecology practice in a community hospital. The student will have a high degree of exposure to attending staff, midwives, and nurse practitioners. The student will be exposed to a variety of outpatient settings: a hospital-based women?s service and midwifery program, as well as private offices including both general Ob/Gyn and specialty practices in urogynecology, maternal fetal medicine, infertility and IVF, and gynecologic oncology. Students will have the opportunity to follow obstetrical patients through their labor, deliver and post-partum care. Operating room experience includes exposure to both general gynecologic surgeries and to advanced laparoscopic and urogynecologic procedures. As the Department of Ob/Gyn at Mount Auburn does not have a house staff to provide continuous supervision, this clerkship is best suited to the students who are mature, self-motivated, and willing to take an active role in their own education.
Faculty comments, oral presentation, preparation for case discussions, and written central examination.
