Before Your Clerkship
Four weeks prior to your rotation start date, students must complete the following steps before starting in Kalispell, MT:
Students will round in the morning and work in the clinic in the morning or afternoon (depending on the MD's schedule), seeing patients with one of the three doctors learning what a general OBGYN does in practice. See sample schedule. Students could also participate in outpatient surgery at the Health Center at KRMC. Additionally, students have the opportunity to help at the Clear Choice free pregnancy clinic.
Students will round each morning with one of the physicians each day as needed, seeing inpatients, moms, and well newborns at Kalispell Regional Medical Center. If the hospital is slow, the student schedule will be augmented with extra clinic time. Students will also have Emergency Department Experiences as the need arises.
Kalispell Regional Medical Center has Monday noon conferences for doctors. The students should attend OB and GYN section meetings, chart reviews, etc.
Transportation & Housing
Student housing is a 2 bedroom/2 bathroom townhouse within walking distance to the hospital and will be shared with the surgery clerkship student on rotation in Kalispell. Students need to provide their own vehicle for this clerkship.
