M4 Bootcamp Event

A detailed day- long instructional course was held at the UIC Chicago Campus shortly after Match Day. Participants in boot camp were M4 students from all University of Illinois College of Medicine campuses who had recently matched into Obstetrics and Gynecology residency.  Teaching faculty from the Generalist Division gave specific hands-on training in basic OB/GYN skills. Some skills reviewed included:  normal vaginal delivery, suturing and episiotomy repair, cesarean section, manual vacuum aspiration, basic laparoscopy, endometrial biopsy and IUD insertion, and gynecologic ultrasound. Both students and faculty enjoyed this exciting event! We look forward to offering the workshop on an annual basis to help prepare our fantastic students to begin their residencies.(4/18)
