College Hill Women's Health Center-OB GYN 677
Rock Springs is the largest town in southwestern Wyoming. The medical service population is 50,000. Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in the county. Being in a rural setting with a mid-sized population and yet a referral and service center for almost a quarter of the state provides an excellent opportunity to obtain many skills in Obstetrics and Gynecology. Your preceptors are the only group that provides obstetric services in the area. Rock Springs is on Interstate 80 and is easily accessible by car. The Rock Springs airport is about 10 miles from town. There are between 2-6 commercial flights daily connecting to Denver International Airport.

You will need a car in Rock Springs. In the winter your car will need antifreeze rated to at least 20F.
You will rotate between several areas during your clerkship. These will include the outpatient clinic, labor and delivery, operating suites, medical-surgery inpatient areas. There are many other opportunities available, depending on your interests (laboratory, emergency department, family planning, etc.).
Located only a few blocks from both the hospital and clinic, housing is currently a two-bedroom, one-bath split-level townhouse, (intended for the students only). It is fully furnished with TV, microwave, dishwasher, washer/dryer, iron & ironing board, telephone and wireless internet. Free parking is available.
Students will take call approximately once every six days, although there is no set call schedule for students. The student is expected to spend several nights during the rotation following patients in labor, and for delivery. A call room is provided next door to the delivery suite. The more patients the students follow in labor, the more deliveries the student will perform.
