What is Obstetrics and Gynaecology?
What does Sheffield ObG have to offer?
Obstetrics and gynaecology is a medical specialty focused on women's health. Obstetrics is concentrated on pregnancy, childbirth and the post-delivery period. Gynaecology is concerned with the health of the female reproductive systems and breasts.
Obstetrics and gynaecology is a combination of medicine and surgery. There are a range of options to undertake sub-specialty training or advanced skills training. There are also opportunities for research and working in global health. Click the button below for more information from the Royal college of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists.
Sheffield ObG Soc aims to inspire and engage medical students to consider a career in Obstetrics and Gynaecology. We aim to organise speaker events from the field in O&G research, women's health advocates and host ethical debates relevant to the field of women's health. We also aim to engage with students of other allied health care professionals such as midwifery students to promote the multidisciplinary team culture.
