Medical Students

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers Thomas Jefferson University medical students a clerkship in their third year of medical school. Students will rotate through Obstetrics and Gynecology with both inpatient and outpatient experiences.  The rotation may include Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and Gynecologic Oncology.

The Department offers fourth year electives to students who are interested in applying to residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology.  Current electives include Gynecologic Oncology, Inpatient and Outpatient Maternal Fetal Medicine, and Research.   We also offer two sub-internships which can be used to fulfill the TJU medical school requirement.  The Outpatient Sub-Internship in Obstetrics and Gynecology meets at Jefferson and includes both general and sub-specialty experiences in an outpatient setting.  The Inpatient Sub-internship is run though the Gynecologic Oncology division. All fourth year rotations are four weeks.  Students from other institutions are welcome to complete fourth year rotations at Jefferson.  Interested students should contact Diana Brooks for information, availability, and application.  Please note that completion of a fourth year rotation is not a requirement for residency application.

Physicians in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology participate in the preclinical curriculum for medical students and the small group curriculum for our first year medical students and teach the Reproductive section for the Foundation of Clinical Medicine for the second year students. 

Students may also participate in our student research program which includes didactics in research design and completion, and mentored research projects.
