OB Assignments

Labor & Delivery (OB1) Rotation

The OB1 works primarily on Labor & Delivery and Triage learning how to evaluate, manage, and treat women with low-risk pregnancies. The OB1 should gain an understanding of antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum care for this patient population. The OB1 is responsible for accepting the labor board during “Morning Board Turn” and signing out the board to the Night Float team at the end of the shift. During the second half of the year, the OB1 should participate in low-risk primary cesarean sections whenever possible.

 


OB High-Risk Outpatient (OB2) Rotation

The OB2 resident works in the clinic seeing outpatient high-risk obstetric patients and in the inpatient setting gaining c-section experience. The resident should obtain an understanding of the management of antepartum patients and the medical comorbidities in this patient population. The OB2 will also work in tandem with the OB1 managing complex Triage patients and L&D.

 


Maternal Fetal Medicine (OB3) Inpatient Rotation

The OB3 resident works primarily on L&D and Triage learning how to evaluate, manage, and treat women with high-risk pregnancies. The OB3 should gain an understanding of antepartum, intrapartum, and postpartum care for this patient population through being directly responsible for the MFM Service.

 


Labor & Delivery (OB4) Rotation

The OB4 works primarily overseeing the rest of the OB team on L&D and Triage. The Chief should function as a junior attending, managing the low-risk and high-risk obstetric inpatients along with the rest of the team. This includes cesarean sections and operative deliveries (assisting/teaching other residents when possible).
