Obstetrics & Gynecology
Obstetrics and Gynecology is a combined medical and surgical specialty dealing with reproduction and diseases of the female reproductive tract. The obstetrician cares for the patient before, during and after pregnancy (both normal and problematic), while the gynecologist provides preventive as well as curative care for non-pregnancy related conditions.
A four-year residency training program in obstetrics and gynecology is provided by the Department. Dr. Rebecca Byler Dann is the Program Director of the Residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The department develops and provides a portion of the M-2, M-3 and M-4 curriculum. Dr. Tom Lee is the M-3 Clerkship Director. Medical students spend six weeks of their third year on an obstetrics and gynecology rotation. The clerkship includes didactic lectures, teaching rounds, and rotations with assigned attending physicians in general gynecology, obstetrics and maternal-fetal medicine. The Department also offers an eight-week obstetrics and gynecology clerkship in the Bloomington area for one third-year student on each of the eight-week rotations.
Electives in maternal-fetal medicine, gynecologic oncology and reproductive endocrinology are available to fourth-year medical students.
Our mission is to provide an outstanding educational experience in the field of obstetrics and gynecology that will facilitate the desire of all of our students, residents, and practicing clinicians to become successful obstetricians and gynecologists.
