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 eight weeks in duration - four weeks on Obstetrics and four weeks on Gynecology - with up to 40 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.
