The Third Year Obstetrics and Gynecology Clerkship is a six-week rotation that consists of four weeks of inpatient care and two weeks of outpatient care. Students’ inpatient assignments consist of obstetrics and gynecology at one of six area hospitals. The obstetrics portion may consist of normal labor and delivery, high-risk obstetrics (maternal-fetal medicine) or routine prenatal care. Gynecology may include benign gynecology and/or gynecologic oncology. During the outpatient weeks, students work one-on-one with a physician in the community at his or her private practice, or in a resident clinic at their hospital site.
The clerkship learning objectives follow those developed by the Association of Professors in Obstetrics and Gynecology (APGO). Faculty, fellows, and residents conduct weekly problem-based learning sessions in small groups. The clerkship concludes with an Observed Structured Clinical Exam and the NBME subject exam.

Every student completes an anonymous review of the clerkship at the end of the six weeks. After a rigorous clinical and didactic experience, most students comment on the engaging and positive aspects of the program:
