Obstetrician and Gynecologist

How to become an Obstetrician Gynecologist

An obstetrician/gynecologist is a medical doctor, who specializes in the medical and surgical care of women, particularly in the areas of pregnancy, childbirth, and disorders of the female reproductive system. This also includes preventative healthcare, prenatal care, the detection of sexually transmitted diseases, Pap smear testing and screening, and family planning.

Generally, there is only one way to become an obstetrician/gynecologist or OB/GYN in the United States - and that one way is to attend medical school. A career as an obstetrician/ gynecologist requires you to obtain a typical medical doctor education at a four year undergraduate college or university, followed by four years of medical school, and three to eight years of residency in obstetrics and gynecology. This residency normally lasts between four and five years.

Persons, who are interested in becoming an obstetrician/gynecologist, must complete four years of undergraduate school at an accredited college or university, four years of medical school specializing in obstetrics and gynecology, and a three to eight year internship and residency in a hospital setting. A few colleges and universities in the United States offer combined undergraduate and medical school programs that last from six years to eight years. Normally, the education and training for both obstetrics and gynecology occur at the same time.

Obstetrician/Gynecology pre-medical (pre-med) students must take and successfully complete undergraduate coursework in biology, anatomy, physiology, organic and inorganic chemistry, math, physics, English, the social sciences and the humanities. To accelerate their medical education, some students volunteer their time at local hospitals, trauma centers, or clinics to gain experience in the health professions.

To be admitted into medical school, you are required to have completed a minimum of three years of study at an accredited undergraduate college or university. Most medical school applicants have at least a Bachelor's degree, and some even have a Master's degree or higher.

Admission to medical school is highly competitive. To be considered, applicants must submit transcripts from undergraduate school, take and pass the Medical College Admission Test, and submit letters of recommendation. Medical schools will also take into account other qualities of potential applicants, such as their character and leadership potential. Their interests in extra-curricular activities are also likely to play a part in the application process. Basically all schools require pre-med students to have an interview with the admissions committee.

Practicing medicine in the United States requires a license. Every state within the United States, including the District of Columbia, and all U.S. territories require practicing physicians to be licensed. All states and jurisdictions also license physicians. To be a licensed physician, you m...
