Hey Everybody -
Does anyone know which guidelines are used on the OB/GYN shelf exam? ACOG and USPSTF guidelines differ in a few areas, such as mammography, and I'm not sure which we'll be tested on.
They may test you an both but will specify which one they are asking about. The main difference is in mammography between usptf and acog. From what I remember though they don’t get to specific on screening questions, and there isn’t much about breast disease on the obgyn shelf unless things have changed drastically.
In my experience, ACOG seems to go with screening mammograms every year past the age of 40 which are the ACS criteria.
