THANK YOU FOR YOUR DONATIONS

We are so grateful for your overwhelming support. We know this is a special program and your enthusiasm and generosity tells us that you do too. Thank you for your continued support of APGO and all that you do for women’s health education.

There is still time to donate. We hope the spirit of generosity and giving exhibited by our members and friends on #GivingTuesday inspires you to consider a gift to support the APGO Academic Scholars and Leaders Program this holiday season. Remember: donations are tax-deductible!

NEW FREE RESOURCE: BASIC SCIENCE VIDEOS WITH COMPANION TEACHING SCRIPTS
APGO is pleased to announce the launch of a new teaching tool! In July 2017, APGO awarded two grants of $50,000 each to APGO member institutions to develop a series of short educational videos and teaching scripts to vertically integrate basic science topics into the ob-gyn clerkship. Each project team developed 15 videos with a companion teaching script for each video.

These 30 videos and scripts provide a nice resource for basic sciences teaching as medical schools transition to earlier introduction to clinical training and competency-based curricula. Basic sciences remain critical to clinical medicine and should be taught across the entire medical education experience. Vertical integration of the basic sciences into clinical medicine during the ob-gyn clerkship will stimulate deeper learning and solidify students’ understanding of fundamental principles.

Start using the videos and scripts today!
