The Objectives are reviewed on a regular basis to ensure their relevance, importance and helpfulness in assisting with the development of obstetrics and gynecology clinical clerkship curricula. A team of ob-gyn clerkship directors and medical educators from the U.S. and Canada had input into the current edition and its format with the goal of making these objectives as useful as possible for clerkship directors, faculty and medical students. For the 10th edition, APGO members and medical students were also surveyed to provide input on format and topics. Please note that the APGO Objectives are not meant to be a mandate; they define a central body of women’s health knowledge, skills and attitudes that are fundamental to the practice of a general physician, and are intended to provide clerkship directors, faculty and students with a resource for curriculum development, teaching and learning. The curriculum content can be expanded or modified for institutions with longer or shorter clerkships. In this edition, we have added osteopathic objectives related to women’s health. We have also included mapping of the objectives to APGO Electronic Resources and Hot Topics, such as advocacy, pharmacology, global health, ethics and more.
