A career in Obstetrics and Gynecology can be extremely rewarding. It is a field of medicine with great diversity ranging from pregnancy care, investigation and treatment of infertility, medical investigation of endocrine disorders, surgical management of pelvic diseases and cancer, diagnostic imaging in obstetrics and gynecology, prenatal diagnosis of genetic and other disorders of development, complex and complicated pregnancies and, not the least, the miracle of healthy birth.
The specialty’s mix of both medical investigative and surgical care is unlike most other specialities. It also offers unique opportunities and flexibility for a wide range of interests and skills. The opportunity to develop a career tailored to these interests is available to all.
There are also the special rewards derived from the close and continuing relationship often developed between the obstetrician/gynecologist and her or his patient.
