Welcome

 

Welcome to the Obstetrics and Gynecology clerkship! 

Obstetrics and gynecology is a fast-paced, diverse field of medicine practiced in a variety of settings, both outpatient and inpatient.  As a clerk on our service, you will have the opportunity to see patients who are healthy, seeking prenatal or preventive care, those who are having an acute life-threatening gynecologic problem and everything in between!

Our goal is to provide you with a well-rounded, solid experience in general obstetrics and gynecology.  Each student will spend time on labor and delivery, in the operating room partcipating in gynecologic surgery and in the outpatient setting.
You may have the opportunity to work with subspecialists including Reproductive Endocrinologists, Gynecologic Oncologists, Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialists and more.

We hope that you become familiar with what the general obstetrician/gynecologist does, have the opportunity to be exposed to common obstetric and gynecologic procedures, solidify pelvic exam skills and learn about important topics in women’s health to serve you in whatever specialty you ultimately choose.   

We are looking forward to meeting you, getting to know you and teaching you.

 

Sincerely,
Alice Chuang
Clerkship Director
