APGO Medical Student Educational Objectives

The APGO Medical Student Educational Objectives are reviewed on a regular basis by the APGO Undergraduate Medical Education Committee (UMEC) to ensure their relevance, importance and helpfulness in assisting with the development of obstetrics and gynecology clinical clerkship curricula.

Please note that the APGO Objectives are not meant to be a mandate; they define a central body of women’s health knowledge, skills and attitudes that are fundamental to the practice of a general physician. They are intended to provide clerkship directors, faculty and students with a resource for curriculum development, teaching and learning. The curriculum content can be expanded or modified for institutions with longer or shorter clerkships.

For the 11th edition, HSS and EPA mapping were incorporated. The companion teaching cases, student logbook and curriculum builder will be updated in 2020.

The 11th edition was revised by the APGO Undergraduate Medical Education Committee (UMEC) in 2019.*
