Obstetrics and gynecology is an extremely rewarding and diverse field of medicine. The educational experiences at Washington University cover medical student training, residency training and advanced training in fellowship programs.
The Department hosts lecture series for both 1st and 2nd year students. Medical students in their third year rotate with the Department of Ob/Gyn for six weeks.
