Description
Provides the student with skills and knowledge needed to care for patients with common gynecological problems, the well-woman examination, and pregnancy from prenatal care through delivery and postpartum. The clerkship is a full-time, 6-week rotation at one of the 3 sites: Stanford University Medical Center & satellite clinics, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and Kaiser Santa Clara. Emphasis is placed on history and physical examination skills in the evaluation and management of pregnancy, vaginal delivery, and both office gynecology and gynecologic surgical procedures through exposure to patients in the outpatient clinics, Labor and Delivery, and the operating room. The student participates in all the academic functions of the department including conferences, grand rounds, lectures, and weekly case studies. A one day orientation is held at the beginning of the clerkship, and students attend a simulation session for OB and Surgical skills during the first week. All students on the clerkship meet for a once weekly didactic session at Stanford. The NBME Subject Exam in Obstetrics and Gynecology is a required component of the clerkship.
