Clinic & Hospital Experience

Students will be assigned to one or two physicians during their rotation and follow that physician in seeing clinic patients, hospitalized patients, surgeries, and deliveries. Students will be expected to take call with the precepting physician, typically one day per week and one weekend during the rotation. On a typical week the student will be in clinic 2-3 days, in surgery 1 day, and on call for Labor and Delivery 1 day. Students will assist with abdominal, vaginal, and laparoscopic surgery. Students will triage labor patients, monitor labor progress, and perform supervised vaginal deliveries. In clinic, students will take histories and perform all clinical procedures, such as IUD placement and removal, coposcopies, biopsies, etc.

Orientation

Students are encouraged to attend one of the live virtual clerkship orientations via Zoom (happen on the first day of every clinical rotation, i.e. "Summer A," "Summer B," etc).
