The Department participates fully in the undergraduate medical program (leading to an MD) of the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry
Years 1 and 2 of the Medical Program at Schulich are divided into a systems-based, patient-centred curriculum. where the Dept. of Obstetrics and Gynaecology has its input in the "Reproductive System" which includes the anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, and clinical aspects of this topic as it relates to women. At the present time, this is taught in a six-week block in year 2.
During the clerkship, clinical clerks spend six weeks learning the basics of clinical Ob/Gyn with sub-rotations in the Delivery Room, the Gynaecology service, and the ambulatory service. Students are assigned to London Health Sciences Centre, and to Windsor Regional Hospital in Windsor as well as selected hospitals in SWOMEN. In addition to the one-on-one teaching that they receive in the clinical workplace, there are numerous structured teaching sessions each week. To get a flavour of how the clerkship is set up, visit The Clerks' Corner.
Following the clerkship, in fourth year, students may elect to spend up to a month with a member of the department to learn in an apprenticeship format to enhance their skills in the area and perhaps to help them make a determination of their career choice.
