First Aid for Third Year Clerkships at JMC

OB/GYN Clerkship at Bryn Mawr

TRANSPORTATION

How did you get there? What is the IDEAL way to get there (if different)? If you took public transportation how much did it cost?
  • Train was easy and gave me time to wake up in the morning
  • Free parking if you needed it.

LIVING

If you lived away from campus, how was the housing?
  • N/A.
Food: Was it paid for? Were there free lunches? Did you get meal vouchers when you were on-call?
  • Meal tickets covered all lunches.

SITE STRUCTURE

How were the 6 weeks divided up?
  • 1 week outpatient.
  • 5 weeks inpatient - L&D, Gyn, OR.

WORK SCHEDULE

What were your hours (roughly)?
  • 7:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. Monday-Friday
  • Night float 7:00 p.m.-7:00 a.m.
  • No call or weekends except Sunday night for night float.
What was the call schedule?
  • No call.
How was the teaching by attendings?
  • The attendings and nurses at Bryn Mawr were awesome. Night float and delivering babies was amazing! Dr. Hirshman is an excellent teacher and really cares about our experience.

HOW TO BE A ROCK STAR

  • Read a lot!
  • "I read blue prints, did the uwise qs twice, uworld and blueprints questions. I dont think I would have done differently"
  • "Study for the weekly quizzes! (Given by Dr. Wolf at Jefferson Lectures each Friday afternoon)"

CANDID COMMENTS FROM STUDENTS

Pros:
  • Meal tickets, super nice attendings.
  • No residents/interns so we got one-on-one experience with attendings and didn't have to fight for space in OR/deliveries.
  • I loved Bryn Mawr, and before this I thought I had no interest in OB, now I am not sure!
Cons:
  • Having to leave Tuesdays to come back to Jefferson; it made you lose an entire day.
