    Hi everyone,
    So I've decided I love women's health but OB isnt the thing for me. Some people suggested I look into IM programs with a women's health track. Does anyone have any info on this and perhaps where I should do fourth year away electives?
    Thanks!

    I think the Brown program had something similar to this. But that was two years ago. Good luck.

    Our program (UIC) has no women's health tract specifically, but recently started a women's health clinic within our medicine clinic. We also have a pap/pelvic clinic. I think more programs will start to place more emphasis on the area of women's health in the future (not to tread on the ob/gyn's toes, but to work with them).

    I did a quick search on the web and found this website:

    Brown has fellowship, but no tract mentioned. There seem to be many others.

    Pitt, Case, Northwestern, and Wisconsin offer women's health tracks. Pitt's program is actually highly regarded.

    Thanks for the info. There are fewer programs than I thought so I guess I should keep my options open.

    The program at University of Pittsburgh is one of the best in the country.

    Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, MA has an IM/Women's Health Track and shouldn't be too hard to get into.
