UW and Harborview Medical Centers-OB GYN 665
Orientation & Preceptor Appointments
On the first day you will attend a general Ob/Gyn clerkship orientation, followed by an introduction to the University/Harborview site. Service assignments, clinic, lecture and call schedules are distributed at this time. All 665 students spend three weeks on GYN Non-Tumor at University Medical Center or the GYN service at Harborview Medical Center. Students with a strong interest in a particular GYN service may request specific assignments by calling the Ob/Gyn Clerkship Administrator (543-3892) no later than two weeks prior to the first rotation day. Requests will be honored as scheduling allows.
Each student is assigned to either a resident or an Attending throughout the rotation. The student accompanies the assigned physician as she/he sees patients and performs parts of the history and physical as directed. All physicians see patients with the student, and together do the work up and decide on patient care. Of the three weeks on the OB service, one week is night float; the other two are on Labor & Delivery and in OB clinics.
Call & Pagers
Each student has one "night float" of call. Night float consists of five nights of call with no clinical responsibilities the following day.
Medical Student Guide
The OB/GYN Residents created this medical student guide to help students rotating on L&D during their rotations. This guide will be distributed at orientation, but it might be helpful for students to review prior to the clerkship start date.
Parking is not provided by the University of Washington for this rotation. Please contact the UW Transportation Office for parking options.
Wednesday mornings are reserved for clerkship lectures and occasionally Departmental Grand Rounds (this schedule may vary during Summer quarter).
Final Exams & Grades
The Final Exam is given at University Medical Center on the last day of the clerkship. Exam results are combined with the results of ward and clinic performance evaluations, workups, and oral topic presentations to determine the final grade. Preceptors and Chief Residents on each service are expected to evaluate students assigned to their services.
At the conclusion of exams, students are required to complete a thoughtful and honest teaching assessment and overall clerkship evaluation. Rental textbooks must be returned to the Clerkship Administrator before the end of the last clerkship day.
We hope your Ob/Gyn Clerkship rotation at University of Washington/Harborview Medical Center site will be an enjoyable and challenging learning experience. Please feel free to contact the Clerkship Administrator's office at 543-3892 in RR601 any time during the rotation if you have additional questions or perceive a problem.
