Part 2:Colleges

There are many colleges and universities. Some major in teaching, engineering , medicine . Because I want become a gynecologist, I would into colleges that major in health, medicine, and etc. After some research.. I found some colleges that major in gynecology. Ohio state, university of florida, Michigan state university, and etc all major in health and medicine. Out of all these colleges I would most likely go to the university of florida because it's closer to home and I get to pay less money.

Part 4: work schedule

6:00 am- I'm up and taking a shower, get dress and eat breakfast. ob/gyn's usually take 24 hour shifts, and today will be my turn.


8:00 a.m. — Patient hand-off. I call the OB-GYN who was on duty yesterday for an update. If there are no gynecological surgery cases, such as a scheduled C-section, I typically go to outpatient clinic. The hospital is relatively quiet today, so it's off to clinic for me.

8:30 a.m. — At the clinic, we usually see routine gynecologic cases, such as annual exams and infections, for Medicaid and uninsured patients in the area. Our patients generally lack reliable access to care, so we often act as their primary care providers. Thankfully, we have a multidisciplinary integrated care model, so patients can easily access other specialties.

10:00 a.m. — I get paged to the emergency room to see a 30-year-old woman, who is 30 weeks pregnant. The patient arrived at the hospital after waking up in a pool of blood at home. I see her name on our list of high-risk OB patients, so I call the ER with standard trauma orders to keep her stable until I arrive.

10:15 a.m. — I race from the clinic to the hospital, and thankfully the bleeding has slowed to a trickle. Paramedics report about a liter of blood loss, so I check the status of the fetus. We discuss blood transfusions, and she appears hesitant.

12:00 p.m. — A scheduled C-section on a 26-year-old. In her third pregnancy, the patient has requested tubal sterilization, so we prepare for this as well.

2:00 p.m. — My resident and I finish the C-section. I get called on a 20-year-old, who, at 41 weeks, needs labor induction. I examine her and give inducing medications over the next 24 hours.

3:15 p.m. — I grab a quick bite to eat during a brief lull.

4:00 p.m. — Rounds on the maternity ward. Many patients with male newborns request circumcision, so after obtaining consent I perform any circumcisions requested.

6:00 p.m. — Quick check on the patient who was bleeding earlier. Her bleeding has stopped, but I plan for further observation.

7:00 p.m. I make it home to catch dinner with my family, which is waiting for me. I hope for a quiet night while I'm on call.

[See the U.S. News family medicine rankings.]

10:00 p.m. I get a call from the clinic's labor and delivery unit about an 18-year-old who is contracting every two minutes. The nurse says she is not dilated, but she asks for my recommendations. I instruct her to start intravenous fluids and testing to assess risk for pre-term delivery.

10:45 p.m. — Follow-up call on the 18-year-old, who is still contracting. I review her test results remotely and determine it's safe to administer medications to stop her contractions.

11:30 p.m. — Another follow-up call on the 18-year-old. The medication is effective, and the patient stops contracting. Fetal monitoring is normal. Her risk for pre-term delivery is low, so we send her home with an appointment to return within the week.

3:00 a.m. — A colleague wakes me up with the news that a patient is in active labor, so it's time to drive back to the hospital. It seems there is always a delivery in the middle of the night!

8:00 a.m. — Time to hand off these cases to my colleagues. I check in briefly with the higher-risk cases, and then it's time to go home and rest.
