Students will be responsible for taking a targeted history, with the ultimate goal of being able to demonstrate proficiency and independence in the performance and evaluation of a gynecologic examination, with particular emphasis on pelvic floor dysfunction. Written clinic notes will be completed by the student and co-signed by either the attending physician or the resident. Outpatient activities will alternate with the opportunity to assist and/or observe surgical procedures throughout the week. In the operating room, the student will scrub or observe on cases and assist the resident with all aspects of post-operative care, including orders, post-op notes and daily rounds. The student will be responsible for seeing all inpatients twice a day with two progress (SOAP) notes in the chart, co-signed by the resident and/or attending.
The student will be responsible for providing one 15 minute presentation on a gynecologic topic of their choice, agreed to by either Dr. Hullfish or Dr. Trowbridge. This will be presented to the team, using evidence-based research skills and PowerPoint, during one of the didactic sessions at the end of the rotation.?Primary literature and resources will be made available to the student on our Division's computerized "O" drive. (O drive/OBGY/FPM resources). Permission is granted on the student's first day on service. Other reading materials will be provided by Dr. Trowbridge and/or Hullfish.
The student may be able to observe multi-channel urodynamics in our outpatient clinic. They may also be able to observe other Urologic or Colorectal Surgeries, and sessions of pelvic floor physical therapy as time and/or interest permits.
