Learning Objectives and Resources

Our clerkship adheres to the recommended learning objectives proposed by the Association of Professors in Gynecology and Obstetrics (APGO). These objectives represent the most commonly cared for pathologies in obstetric and gynecologic care and are consistent with the tested material on the NBME clerkship examination. The APGO educational objectives can be found at the link below, along with resources created to synthesize understanding of these concepts.


There are multiple resources to enhance your exam prep and concept-retention for our clerkship. You are advised to use modalities that fit your learning style and that have contributed to prior exam success, however, if you are still struggling with test-taking skills, you should reach out to the clerkship director and OSA/CoM learning specialists to help you on the road to success.
