AMBULATORY OUTPATIENT CLINIC SITES

HCOC

U of L Health - Health Care Outpatient Center

This site is the primary location for the Department of OB/GYN & Women's Health Outpatient Clinics.  OB/GYN specialty clinics include: 

 

 

  • Maternal-Fetal Medicine (MFM) High-Risk Pregnancy Clinic
    • PGY-1-4 residents actively manage patients in this ambulatory setting with our MFM faculty.
  • Gynecologic Surgery Clinic
    • PGY-4 and PGY-1 residents on the Benign Gynecology rotation and the PGY-2 resident on the Out-patient Ambulatory Surgery rotation manage a half-day clinic twice a week.    
    • The resident meets with the patient, conducts a full history and physical, orders pertinent pre-operative tests, consents the patient for surgery and serves as the surgeon for the patient. The patient is followed post-operatively by the primary operating resident. This design follows our mission of providing the resident and patient with optimal continuity of care.
  • Ultrasound Diagnostic Clinic
    • PGY-1 and PGY-4 residents manage a half-day clinic once a week. Supervised by their faculty attending, the resident observes or performs ultrasounds.

HOSPITAL SITES

At each site, residents provide pre-operative, operative, and post-operative care for patients. Physician attendings scrub in on each case providing supervision and teaching. Residents are gradually allowed greater autonomy as their level of experience and competency in each surgical arena increases.  The goal is for each resident to eventually garner ample experience to become the primary surgeon during surgeries and to be able to independently operate.
