Description of Program: This elective will provide the student with a diverse urban population of ambulatory patients. The subintern will get significant exposure to routine and high risk obstetrics as well as obstetric triage. There is also significant exposure to a mixture of gynecologic patient visits: acute care, preventative care, vaginitis/STDs, infertility, colposcopy, urogynecology and breast disease. The student will work closely with the residents and the attending physician and will spend most of his/her time in the outpatient clinic. The outpatient clinic uses abdominal and transvaginal ultrasound routinely throughout the day as a diagnostic tool, and students will be encouraged to get experience with supervision. Students will be encouraged to participate in teaching rounds and lectures that are occurring daily within the department before the clinic opens. In addition to other regularly scheduled clinics and conferences, the Division offers a weekly high-risk pregnancy conference, weekly high-risk pregnancy clinic, weekly tumor board and three hours of didactic sessions each Friday. Students in this subinternship are welcome to participate in these activities.
