9OBGYNCredit hours: 8First Three Weeks: including the patient safety lectures.Theory lectures.Tutorials.SkillsFour weeks: (logbook+ writing cases)Clinical rotation: history, physical examination.Sessions with doctors.Attending clinics.Attending surgeries.On call: delivery room, ER. (2 days only)Clinics: everyday the doctors have a meeting from 8-9 you can attend (optional) or ditch and sleep incheck which days the doctor has clinics (some don't give sessions unless its the same day as the clinic ex. two days a week so make sure when they're there), OR, rounds if you are interested in attending or if the doctor wants you to attendgo to the clinics prepared, at least read a few lectures before meeting the doctor so you can discuss something in the sessionyour experience in the clinic depends on the doctors so it's better to ask aroundalways take a note pad with you because some doctors hint at the exams or OSCE (ex. Dr. Abdlwahab and Dr.Saed When I took a session with them, they mentioned things like "this comes frequently in the osce" or "you will be asked in the exam". They are amazing tutors btw and will show or discuss interesting cases.)We had a logbook to fill out (we had to attend 2 normal deliveries, 1 cesarean, a laparoscopy, a laparotomy, dilatation and curettage, case presentation, write down 2 cases) heard that you don't have one after we complained about it. If you don't have a logbook then your life will be so much easier.

(10%)Clinical assessment: (10%)Logbook.Attendance.What to expect in the exam:I'm not sure what the department has told you in orientation or what they have in mind for your batch so I don't know if you're going to get the same thing or there are some changes but just for a heads up to let you know1.Midterm:in the midterm the questions were mostly case based (in the attachment in our mid MCQs)I didn't read the previous MCQs but from what I heard is there weren't any questions from them, and only a few were repeatedmostly focused on gynecology (amenorrhea, fibroids..) and bit of obstetrics (diabetes, hypertension,managing different fetal presentations, RH isoimmunization ..)Diagnosis of a case is based on what is written in the lecture and what the doctor's mentionedknowing the diagnostic tests and type of management is important:Gyn: for example you'll have a case of bleeding: post partum hemorrhage/post menopausal bleeding/menorrhagia so you should differentiate from medical what type of medications or surgical such as hysterectomy with or without oophorectomy, dilatation, curettage, etc Obs: for example presentation of fetus and how to manage, normal delivery or c-section. Diagnostic tests: blood sugar, glucose challenge test, ultrasound: fetal Tutorials were includedno oncology in midterm, but there were questions about fibroids2. Final:oncology was added to the things we had to study in the midtermthe questions were more direct and based on memorization and there were less case based questionsI don't know if the MCQ team have a file for the question but from what I remember:there were less case based questions and more direct ones that rely on pure memorization an example: "You are in a session and a colleague asked you this question: what is the length of the (something to do with the pelvic inlet: one of the conjugates not sure which one) and the answers were in centimeters. tutorials were included (even the patient safety one). Patient safety question: you are in a clinic treating a child. The patient was seen by a doctor the day before and was sent home. You felt that the doctor made a mistake and the patient should have been admitted immediately. Should you: tell the parents the doctor was wrong, keep quiet ...Patient safety: I don't know about you guys, but we had some patient safety lectures that we were examined on separately after the final. They were 10 questions but they weren't included and they don't know what to do with the grades. 3. DXR:I don't know if you are required to it but this is what happened with us:I suggest you get all the green stars in each case because it's supposed to be out of 10 and only one person I believe got a full mark. Everyone else got a random grade. They told us that they'll give out the grade depending on the average but they didn't tell us what the average is and 9ara7a 4alamona bil 3alamat. There are some girls who screen saved the answers somewhere. So my advice is stay on the safe side, forget about being an honest person and just copy all the answers and get them all right.

You loose marks if you used the "extra" equipment- ENT: 2 stations, history AND physical in one station.
