How to receive credit from Ob/Gyn rotation - 3 options

Dear students, (6th year)

As you already know Ob/Gyn Syllabus last 7 weeks – (3 weeks of practical seminars and theoretical lectures, 2 weeks of clinical attendance, 1 study week, and 1 exam week)

Therefore, there are 3 ways how to fulfill the criteria for Ob/Gyn subject.

One of the following 3 options you choose in SIS as a subgroup of the subject (in case you will require a switch group, you just need to send it to us by email)

You will always need to pass the final State exam at First Faculty.

1) Full attendance of 5+2weeks at the First Faculty -   see further details here

2) You will attend 2 weeks of clinical elective (any Ob/Gyn department -worldwide), and bring stamped certificate. Then you will be required to attend 3 weeks of practical seminars and theoretical lectures. After that you receive credit. (no need for pre-approval)

3) You will attend a full Ob/Gyn program at a recognized university abroad. This requires receiving our pre-approval. You will send us your request, with the name of the university and its Ob/Gyn syllabus. After our review, you will (or not) receive our approval and you will be required to submit a certificate from the visiting university. After that you receive credit and you might register for any available State exam dates after that.

We encourage you to do a voluntary summer elective where you should see (normal delivery, Ob/Gyn ultrasound examination, hysterectomy, cesarean section, gynecological examination, and routine ward care)

We recognize this voluntary elective (worldwide, only certificate needed) and you will be able to skip 2 weeks of clinical attendance)
