The mandate of the rotation is to provide Undergraduate Medical Students with clinical exposure to the discipline of obstetrics and gynecology. Problem assisted learning, weekly seminars, clinical/pathology, teaching sessions as well as departmental teaching rounds will be used to ensure the necessary clinical and basic science objectives are filled prior to the completion of medical school training.
