what about ob/gyn?

Discussion in 'Clinical Rotations' started by neilc, Dec 11, 2001.

  1. i am interested in ob/gyn, but i have a couple negatives going in. first, i am an international student, and second i am male. i would love to hear what stats are needed for ob/gyn. from my research, it looks fairly benign, but if any out there is in the process, i would love to hear how it is going...especially stats from males and imgs.

    thanks in advance!

  3. wow, it seems as no one is looking into ob/gyn...looks like it must be an easy match, eh?

    or else i am so offensive, nobody wants to talk with me...it is ok, sniff, i can take it!

    I'm interested in Ob/Gyn, along with many other things. However, I haven't even started med school yet, and don't know much about what you're asking.

    Sorry I couldn't help, but I just wanted to let you know you're not the only one interested in Ob/Gyn. :)

    Seems like about 20 out of 100 students here are going into OB/GYN and it sounds like it's moderately competitive. I really don't know anything about what's going on this year, just have a lot of friends trying to match and they all seem to have plenty of interviews. As in any specialty there are always some places that are extremely competitive to train at but I'd bet you could get into a program somewhere.

    Do not do an OB/Gyn residency if you are a male. Your job opportunities after residency will be very limited. Plus can you imagine being around a bunch of overworked, underpayed females all day :)

    Hey -
    Im doing my ob/gyn rotation right now. Seems like its not too hard to get into a residency these days. There are fewer men going into it these days but I dont think that its a reason not to do it if you love it. From what I hear, the hard part for men is getting their practice rolling. It seems that once you have a reputation its fine. There are quite a few men in the program here and they dont seem that worried.
    Good luck!
    Ann

    I am female and am interested in ob/gyn. The only thing that turns me off from it are the hours. To the female obstetricians out there, how do you manage your time between your career and your family?
