Introduction

Welcome to Missoula, Montana. During your six week rotation in Missoula you will be working with three obstetrician-gynecologists who work at the Western Montana Clinic, a multispecialty clinic in Missoula. There are two hospitals in Missoula ­ Missoula Community Medical Center and St. Patrick's Hospital. The majority of your time will be spent at Community Hospital as all of the deliveries in Missoula are done at this hospital. Surgery will be done at both Community and St. Patrick's Hospitals.

In this clerkship we hope to offer you a wide variety of experiences including basic obstetrics and gynecology, surgery, and infertility.
