The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Curriculum

Post-Graduate Year-1

The intern year comprises eleven blocks within the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and two blocks in other departments. During the months within OB/GYN, four blocks are spent on the obstetrics service, two blocks are on the gynecology service, and two blocks are on night float. The additional three blocks of OB/GYN are reserved for ultrasound, entry-level oncology, and two weeks each of NICU and family planning experience (one block). Outside the department the intern spends one block each in medical intensive care and the emergency department.


Post-Graduate Year-2

During the second year, 13 blocks are spent in obstetrics and gynecology, including subspecialties in gynecologic oncology (two blocks), endocrinology (one block), urogynecology (one block) and ultrasound (one block).

Post-Graduate Year-3

The third year of residency carries greater responsibilities as the resident may function as the “senior on service.” The year is spent in obstetrics and gynecology, including subspecialties (gynecologic oncology, urogynecology, and endocrinology/infertility). An ‘elective’ block rotation is included this year as well to supplement a resident’s specific interests.

Post-Graduate Year-4

In the final year of the program, all rotations are in obstetrics and gynecology, including two blocks of gynecologic oncology, one block in endocrinology/infertility, and one month in urogynecology. Experience in perinatology occurs at all educational levels during the obstetrics rotations. The University of Tennessee Medical center is the site for all rotations.
