OB/GYN Study Sources

I have had a few people ask me which books I used to prepare for my OB/GYN rotation so I thought it would be a good idea to share with everyone. The 4 main sources that I used to study before/during my rotation are:

1. Blueprints: OB/GYN ($35-40)
2. Case Files: OB/GYN ($25-30)
3. Obstetrics, Gynecology, and Infertility (Great pocket guide) ($15)
4. UpToDate.com (which I can only use at the hospital because I do not have a personal subscription)

I wanted to share a little about the Case File series because although I had heard of them before, I hadn't used them -- but now that I have - I love the set up. Each chapter starts with a brief case vignette and a couple questions such as: What is the likely diagnosis? or What would you do next? Then you are given the answers along with a brief teaching section on the topic. Lastly, they give you 5 or so multiple choice questions covering the chapter material (answers included). By the end of each chapter I really felt like I knew the material. This set up may not be for everyone so I took some page-shots so you can check it out before you make the purchase. I borrowed mine from the school library for the duration of my rotation.

  1. One of the major concerns among women who just found out that they're on their way is how to look for the best OBGYN doctors.
