The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is one of the clinical departments of the Ponce School of Medicine. It is composed of a core group of clinicians who are members of the academic staff of the medical school, in private practice and/or in the teaching staff at the Ob/Gyn residency program at the New San Lucas Hospital. Residents and Interns also participate in the teaching of students.

The following clinical facilities are available to our students during the third and fourth year rotation:

  • Saint Luke’s Episcopal Hospital

  • Damas Community Hospital

  • San Cristóbal Hospital

  • Metropolitan Center Dr. Tito Mattei Hospital

The principal goal of the department is to provide the students with the core knowledge and skills in Obstetrics and Gynecology that are essential to every primary care physician.

OBG 976-3 OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY ELECTIVES

Report to: Proctor Assigned                            Duration: Four Week Rotation
Student per Period: One student

COURSE DESCRIPTION:

The major objective of the senior rotations in our department is to assign the students a level of responsibility similar to a first year resident in OB-GYN. We consider these students as acting interns and require them to perform as such.

The fourth year clinical clerkship in General OB-GYN has been design to provide the students with the additional exposure needed to expand their clinical knowledge and skills in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Students are exposed to additional clinical material in their assigned or chosen hospital facilities; and are expected to work extensively with the department's staff in each location. The major goal of this rotation is to require the student to perform at the level of an acting intern and to demonstrate their capability to work as part of the healthcare team.


REQUIREMENTS:

Each clinical site will have a schedule of daily clinical duties for the four weeks of the clerkship. The student coordinator at each center will distribute this schedule. No student should modify their assigned schedule without first notifying their student coordinator. Unauthorized student absence from their clinical duties will result in dismissal from the rotation and non passing grade. The clinical duties may include labor and delivery, operating room, emergency room and outpatient facilities.
