Overview

Content

The Obstetrics and Gynecology core clerkship, under the direction of Dr. Jocelyn Greely, is part of the core clinical curriculum for Baylor College of Medicine medical students. Students may enroll in the rotation as early as the second half of their MS2 year. The clerkship is six weeks in duration - two weeks on inpatient, two weeks on outpatient, and two weeks on L&D/triage- with up to 35 students enrolled in any given term.

Currently, the core clerkship is reserved for Baylor College of Medicine students only. Non-Baylor students who are in their MS4 year and have completed their core clerkship in OB/GYN at their home institution are invited to apply for our electives through VSAS. Due to the COVID-19, Baylor will not be accepting visiting students for the 2020-2021 academic year.
