The program is focused on an obstetrical and gynecological care of our patients. Screening programs in obstetrics and gynecology are discussed. Students are taught about surgical procedures in obstetrics and gynecology. They assist in spontaneous and operative deliveries including caesarean sections. They take part in the course of outpatient care about pregnant patients and their screening. They are present at gynecological surgeries during basic examinations, admissions and planning procedures for our incoming patients, who come primarily or are sent by their OBGYN GPs. They are present or assist at minor or regular operations in our theatres. Moreover, students are present at ultrasonic examinations of OB/GYN patients including the screening in pregnancy. Subspecialties in OBGYN are taught as well.
