The Obstetrics and Gynecology Clerkship offers third-year medical students a rotation in the core discipline of women's health. The gynecologist and obstetrician are involved in every facet of women's health care maintenance and delivery throughout the patient's lifespan. They provide care from prepubertal and early menarche; act as primary care providers for healthy women; help womenexperience the joy of normal pregnancy and delivery; and provide care during crises of infertility, pregnancy loss, and cancer. Therefore, a general understanding of the field is important to the development of a well-rounded primary care physician. Medical students are exposed to all aspects ofthe specialty, including ambulatory clinics, hospital inpatient wards, the operating room, emergency room visits and consults, radiology, and the labor and delivery suite.
