Welcome to your third year Obstetrics and Gynecology Clinical Clerkship! Obstetrics and Gynecology is an exciting and unique field of medicine! In the span of one day, you may perform a surgery, deliver a baby, evaluate an elderly woman with ovarian cancer, and counsel a 15 year-old about prevention of pregnancy and sexually-transmitted infections. Obstetrics and gynecology offers breadth within the focus of women's health care. Over the next six weeks, you will experience many sides to women's health care that you may not have even known about.
