Junior Medical Students

Atlanta Medical Center is affiliated with the Medical College of Georgia and serves as a clinical training site for medical students on core OB/GYN clerkship. We typically have four medical students every six weeks.

At Atlanta Medical Center, the senior student will be introduced to the full spectrum of disciplines in Obstetrics and Gynecology. The student will participate in antepartum rounds, patient work-ups, deliveries and postpartum care. Students have the option of selecting from the following rotations: General OB/GYN, Ambulatory OB/GYN or Gynecology Oncology.

The student is assigned responsibility for the evaluation and care of Obstetrics and Gynecology patients under the supervision of the resident physicians and attending physician. This elective provides 2 weeks of General Obstetrics and 2 weeks of General Gynecology. The Gynecology service includes an active operative room and outpatient surgery center representing the full range of gynecologic surgery. Students on the Gynecology Service will assist in the work-up of surgery and post-op care of patients with attendings and residents. Additionally, Emergency Room visits are covered by the Gynecology service.
