This clinical study aid was designed in the tradition of the First Aid series of books, formatted in the same way as the other titles in this series. Topics are listed by bold headings to the left, while the “meat” of the topic comprises the middle column. The outside margins contain mnemonics, diagrams, summary or warning statements, “pearls,” and other memory aids. These are further classiﬁ ed as “exam tip” noted by the symbol, “ward tip” noted by the symbol, and “typical scenario” noted by the symbol.
The content of this book is based on the American Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO) and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) recommendations for the OB/GYN curriculum for thirdyear medical students. Each of the chapters contain the major topics central to the practice of obstetrics and gynecology and closely parallel APGO’s medical student learning objectives. This book also targets the obstetrics and gynecology content on the USMLE Step 2 examination.
The OB/GYN clerkship can be an exciting hands-on experience. You will get to deliver babies, assist in surgeries, and see patients in the clinic setting. You will ﬁ nd that rather than simply preparing you for the success on the clerkship exam, this book will also help guide you in the clinical diagnosis and treatment of the many interesting problems you will see during your obstetrics and gynecology rotation.
