This experience is obtained at UT Medical Center under the direction of the Departments of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Family Medicine. Electives during the year are available in newborn nursery, neonatal intensive care, and anesthesiology. Participation in teaching students and residents in the Family Medicine Ambulatory Clinic and the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is expected.
