Obstetrics and Gynecology Clerkship
The Obstetrics and Gynecology Clerkship is a 6-week educational experience delivered on two clinical campuses, Macon and Savannah. While the two venues are not identical, the campuses share an identical curriculum which has been developed from the APGO Medical Student Educational Objectives. The clerkship is structured to incorporate ample clinical experience supplemented with didactic teaching sessions delivered by an enthusiastic and dedicated faculty.
General educational goals of the program are:
- An understanding of the basic anatomy and physiology of the female reproductive system and common disorders that may occur.
- An understanding of the physiologic changes of normal pregnancy and common abnormalities that may occur during pregnancy.
- An understanding of the primary health care needs of women including family planning, screening for malignancy, and counseling for sexually transmitted diseases.
- Awareness of the impact on health and well being of psychosocial factors such as pregnancy wastage, sexuality, and domestic violence.
- Direct patient care experience in both inpatient and ambulatory settings with emphasis on management of normal pregnancy and ambulatory gynecology
