The didactic portion consists of daily morning rounds, weekly lectures by attending physicians, residents and PAs, monthly journal clubs, morbidity and mortality conferences, assigned readings, and self-directed learning. The clinical portion consists of training and experience in labor and delivery, ER consults, OR assisting, post-operative management and outpatient management.
