Tips for Excelling in the Obstetrics/Gynecology Rotation
A note about obstetrics/gynecology: OB-GYNs provide specialty care for women and often serve as primary care physicians, too. Primary care responsibilities include basic preventive health care, screening, counseling, health promotion and patient education, and behavioral intervention. Understanding both the wide range of issues encompassed in the primary-preventive health care role, as well as those covered within the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology, are paramount to achieving proficiency as an obstetrician/gynecologist.
