All students are required to attend the 2 day Women’s Care Orientation the first two days of the 6 week Women’s Care Clerkship. On the beginning of the first day of Orientation, the Directors and Clerkship Coordinator will give an overview of required assignments, grading and attendance policy, and Procedure Logger requirements. Students will then attend lectures that cover a range of APGO approved topics delivered by faculty, visiting doctors and residents. For lunch on the second day, there is an optional Ovarian Cancer Survivor’s luncheon. Students sign up to attend the lecture prior to Orientation. Lunch will be provided to students who attend while ovarian cancer survivors open a discussion about their personal experiences with ovarian cancer. On the second day of Orientation, students will be assigned to small groups with faculty facilitators to discuss ethical dilemmas within medical care as a part of the required ethics assignment. Students will be given required readings the first day of Orientation for these discussions.
Students are required to submit two H&P write ups during the course of the clerkship: One should involve an OB patient and the second on a patient with a GYN related issue.
Students are required to take a written Shelf Exam and Standardized Patient Exam on the last day of the Women’s Care Clerkship.
Students are required to turn in the Mid Rotation Review evaluation form and the T-RES report logger.
