Obstetrics & Gynecology
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers diverse teaching to both students and residents and educates them in multiple aspects of women's healthcare. The Department incorporates physicians from six hospitals affiliated with the Sackler Faculty of Medicine at Tel Aviv University:
- Assaf Harofeh Medical Center
- Bellinson Medical Center
- Sheba Medical Center
- Meir Medical Center
- Wolfson Medical Center
- Sourasky Medical Center (Ichilov)
Student teaching begins in the second or third year of medical studies, with a series of lectures on the reproductive system. Later, the student teaching is conducted in the framework of a clerkship, in the third year of the 4-year program. The clerkship is intended to provide knowledge of the various fields of gynecology through practical teaching and extensive clinical exposure. The clerkship lasts for seven weeks, and the student joins a team of doctors for their morning meetings and activities in the delivery room. Students will also join units for high-risk pregnancies, as well as fertility clinics to learn more on IVF and ultrasound.
Practice is an important part of clinical studies in OB/GYN, and students learn how to properly perform gynecological exams. They also conduct simulations to strengthen their skills in adminstering ultrasound and laparoscopy.
