Transitioning from medical student to residency interns are given graduated levels of responsibility and independence. Off service rotation are conducted in the first year to establish general knowledge and skill with colleagues within our departments. Interns will start to learn obstetric triage and intrapartum management. Intern surgical experiences include cesarean sections and minor laceration repair. Minor gynecologic cases; include LEEP, hysteroscopy, and tubal ligation. Interns are first call for ER consultations.
Rotations:
  • Obstetrics (3 months) – The obstetrics intern learns the management of normal labor, delivery, postpartum care, and triage. While on rotation to labor and delivery PGY-1 may also scrub in on scheduled cesarean deliveries. The intern is responsible for management of the postpartum floor, and triage with the supervision of our staff.
