The main goal of curriculum is to enable the undergraduate students to acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes in the discipline of Obstetrics & Gynaecology as essential for a general practitioner.


The student should be able to:

  • Make Diagnosis and organize management of antenatal, intranatal and postnatal period of normal and abnormal pregnancy;
  • Provide adequate care of common gynae problems and emergencies
  • Manage common gynae problems and emergencies
  • Provide Counseling and delivery of fertility regulation methods.
  • Acquire knowledge of methods of termination of pregnancy.
  • Apply knowledge of vital statistics in obstetrics and RCH programme
  • Develop communication skills.

Practical & clinical training

–          Students should be trained about proper history taking, clinical examination.

–          Advicing relevant necessary investigations and their interpretation and management.

–          Posting in OPD, wards, operation theaters, labor room and family planning clinics.

–          Students should observe common OPD procedures like, E.A., D & C, MTP, Pap Smear, CuT insertion. Observe normal deliveries, forceps and ventouse assisted deliveries, cesrean section.

–          Ligations, minilap procedures like abdominal, vaginal hysterectomy, foltergill repair. COURSE CONTENT
