The Clerkship in Obstetrics and Gynecology at Brigham and Women’s Hospital
We would like to welcome you to the Brigham and Women’s Hospital Obstetrics and Gynecology Medical Student Clerkship. This is an exciting time in your professional education and we hope that this clerkship will continue to challenge and inspire you.
The mission of our clerkship is “to engage active learners in women’s health care." Our dedicated faculty and resident teachers will strive to actively involve you in patient care to maximize your learning.
We foster a climate of academic and clinical excellence, which is continually promoted and achieved in a collegial, supportive, professional environment to support your education.
During your clerkship, you will have the opportunity to interact with women in all stages of life, from adolescence through and beyond menopause. You will experience a variety of obstetrical and gynecologic conditions including high risk pregnancies, infertility and gynecologic malignancies. You will see patients in both outpatient and inpatient settings, participate in the care of laboring patients, attend deliveries and gynecologic surgeries, and gain an understanding of the primary care mission within our specialty. You will learn about many obstetrical and gynecologic conditions and acquire valuable skills during this rotation that will serve you well for the rest of your careers.
As in all of your core clerkships, we will challenge you to not only learn the medicine of our field but also to grow as health care providers in general. Our hope is that you will enjoy this clerkship, that it will stimulate your desire to be a "lifelong learner" and that you will appreciate what an honor and privilege it is to call yourself a physician. This website outlines the structure of our third year clerkship as well as contains information for fourth year students and educators. The student log-in section is for currently enrolled third year Harvard Medical Students in the Brigham and Women’s Principal Clinical Experience and fourth year elective students. Please explore our website and contact us with any questions.
Thank you and have a great rotation.
