Site Overview

During their rotation at Group Health Bellevue, students will be assigned to both the Ob/Gyn Clinic at Bellevue Medical Center office as well as the Labor and Delivery unit at Overlake Hospital in alternating one-week blocks. During the Ob/Gyn Clinic blocks, students will be assigned to one permanent staff physician each week. Under this guidance, the students will observe the process of medical care in the clinic and be introduced to pelvic examinations, patient interviews, etc. They will take histories and perform physicals, including the pelvic examination. Students will also go to surgery with their assigned physician. They will do a complete presurgical workup and assist the attending surgeon at surgery. On the Labor and Delivery blocks of rotation, the students will be assigned to the Labor and Delivery unit to follow the patients in labor and delivery. Depending on the total exposure and ability of the individual student, students may be able to perform some deliveries, with or without episiotomy repair. While on the Delivery Service, students will be expected to remain until 11:00 p.m. when on call (every 3rd night and weekend day).

Evaluations

Students will be evaluated on their performance in surgery, delivery room and clinic; on their presentation and patient workups; and on their oral and written final examination taken at the University of Washington.
