Acting Internships

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology welcomes medical students from accredited U.S. or Canadian medical schools who are strongly considering OB/GYN as a career. The rotations are four weeks long and include both inpatient and outpatient care. Students work closely with house staff to ensure sufficient patient contact. Students attend all OB/GYN educational conferences.

We accept students starting August 1 through January 31. We will accept applications starting on March 1 through May 1 and will alert all students of their application status before June 1. We will accept applications through the VSLO program. Please contact us directly if you have any barriers to applying through this program. We will also accept applications emailed to the program directly. View the Clerkship Application Here.
