Medical School Training
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Inova Women’s Hospital has been training medical students since 1978.
George Washington University medical students spend four of their eight-week clerkship rotations with the Department of OB/GYN at Inova Women’s Hospital due to the large volume of obstetrical experiences and diversity of gynecologic services.
Virginia Commonwealth University established Northern Virginia's first regional medical campus at Inova Fairfax Medical Campus in 2005. Medical students from VCU spend their third and fourth years at Inova for their clerkship rotations and are with the Department of OB/GYN for six weeks. Additionally, VCU Richmond Campus medical students spend time at Inova. Fourth year students can pursue an elective in personalized medicine at the Women’s Health Integrated Research Center (WHIRC) where they spend six weeks working with senior scientists working on translational research programs in cancer and maternal fetal medicine.
The Department of OB/GYN at Inova Women’s Hospital has also been training medical students from many other programs through electives and acting internships in gynecologic oncology, maternal fetal medicine, and women's health research.
