Fourth Year Rotations
Sub-Internship and Clerkships
The University of Kansas School of Medicine-Wichita Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program has several rotations available for fourth year rotations. As only one elective may be taken per student, it is our goal to expose the student to all aspects of the residency program and provide the opportunity to work with several residents and faculty. Students will participate in resident didactic sessions and attend all conferences. Upon completion of a senior elective or sub-I, the student will have an excellent understanding of life as a resident and attending in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
OBGN 976 General Obstetrics and Gynecology (4-8).
Senior medical students will be assigned to the obstetrical service at Wesley hospital, where over 500 women deliver each month. The volume provides the student outstanding experience in antepartum, intrapartum and postpartum management of low and high-risk deliveries. The student will work with several residents as well as attending physicians. The student will act as an intern and take the role of primary surgeon in obstetrical cases including cesarean deliveries.

Students choosing the MFM elective will be assigned to one of the perinatologists and work closely with the resident running the high-risk service. The student's time will be spent in the clinical setting as well as managing high-risk in-patients. The elective will expand the student's knowledge in managing pregnancies complicated by medical co-morbidities as well as diagnosis and management of obstetrical complications. The student will participate and manage patient's care in daily in-patient rounds.
OBGN 995 Special Topics in Obstetrics (2-8).
The elective in Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility provides the senior medical student the opportunity to learn the evaluation and diagnostic techniques for the infertile patient.

Several procedures will be observed including tubal anastomosis, myomectomy, advanced sonography, operative hysteroscopy and assisted reproductive techniques.

The objectives of this course for a senior medical student are to introduce the student to gynecologic malignancies, their presenting symptoms, their evaluation, and treatment thereof.
