The Academic Program
Instruction in obstetrics and gynecology (OBGN) is divided into four general areas: basic clerkship, student electives, residency training, and continuing medical education. The main objectives of the basic clerkship during the third year is to give students an overall perspective of the entire field, an in-depth knowledge of women’s health care, and an ability to perform those technical skills necessary for the care of women. The elective experiences are developed to allow interested students the opportunity to acquire detailed knowledge and experience in women’s health care or within specific areas of care.
The department directs a residency training program for medical graduates who desire specialty training in the field. The MD education program is closely integrated with residency training to maintain communication and learning experience throughout training. The department has an active research program in the clinical area of human reproduction. The department is divided into the following divisions: ambulatory care, education, endocrinology-infertility, fetal-maternal medicine, gynecology, obstetrics, oncology, urogynecology, and research.
