PGY-1 sonagram of baby

The first post-graduate year in obstetrics and gynecology consists of five months of obstetrics, two months of gynecologic oncology, two months of outpatient gynecology, one month of general surgery, one month of inpatient medicine, and one month of emergency medicine.

This first year is designed to offer residents a diversified experience in each of the above disciplines which will best prepare the resident to pursue a post-graduate career in obstetrics and gynecology.

The five-month rotation on obstetrics and gynecology provides the resident with first-hand experience in the care of the normal and high-risk obstetric patient under the supervision of the housestaff and full-time staff of the department. Three months of the PGY-1 year is an introduction to surgical techniques and management of surgical patients. Two months are on the gynecologic oncology service and one month on the breast service in the department of general surgery.

Concentrated instruction in the management of common medical conditions is experienced on the inpatient medicine service and on the emergency medicine rotation. Direct supervision is provided by senior housestaff and attending faculty from the department of medicine and the department of emergency medicine.
