Welcome to the Division of Obstetrics and Gynecology
We provide medical students with teaching and clinical experience in the reproductive and general preventive areas of women's health.
Your educational experiences include patient encounters, extensive didactic materials, interactive case-based discussions with faculty and clinical rotations that develop clinical skills and reasoning.
Obstetrics and gynecology is part of the Longitudinal Integrated Clerkship at all three campuses. Electives are available for both research and clinical experience in Sioux Falls and at other sites in the state of South Dakota, as well as at teaching hospitals outside the state.
