OBGYN 419 - OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY ACTING INTERNSHIP

[152 Hours]
This four week rotation provides senior students with the opportunity to begin functioning as interns. Students will develop additional skills in all areas of core competence. Particular emphasis is given to improving skills of clinical judgment and decision making by giving students more responsibility for patient care than they had in the third year. Students are encouraged to take increasing amounts of responsibility while under the close supervision of hours staff and faculty. In addition to patient care skills, students will also enhance their communication skills, and develop a better appreciation of systems based practice due to their involvement as a more prominent member of the health care team. Students will continue to increase their medical knowledge and skills of practice-based learning through reading, faculty feedback, and attendance at conferences and didactic sessions.
