Obstetrics & Gynecology Rotation

The Obstetrics & Gynecology course is designed to ensure that students are exposed to a variety of clinical situations and experiences. Each student spends six weeks participating in a variety of clinical activities related to women’s health care including:

  • experience in labour and delivery;
  • inpatient antenatal and postpartum units;
  • antenatal clinics;
  • gynecologic ambulatory care; and
  • inpatient gynecology.
  • Dependent on the assigned teaching site, there may also be a week in gynecologic oncology (St. John’s, NL). 

In addition to clinical activities, students also have assigned protected time for academic half-day sessions. This will be posted on One45. Students are assigned to the Health Sciences Centre. The specific arrangement of this rotation includes one week in the labour and delivery unit, one week on the gynecologic oncology service, and four weeks on a general obs/gyn team. Students also have the option of completing the core Obstetrics & Gynecology rotation at one of three New Brunswick sites (Saint John, Fredericton, and Moncton), subject to availability.
