Obstetrics

Most Urban residents will do their OB rotation in 2 week chunks at either the Civic or General campuses.

The structure of the rotation is generally as follows:

For each 2 week rotation, you will be paired with another resident. You will each do 3 x 12 hour shifts in a row from Tuesday – Thursday or each each. You will alternate working the daytime shift (7 am-7 pm) or the overnight shift (7 pm-7 am) each week.

Alternatively, you can split the 24 hour shifts into 12 hours shifts. Instead of working 3 x 12 hour rotations followed by 1 x 24 hour shift each week, you can do 5 x 12 hour shifts in a row (all days or all nights). This way you never have to work a 24 hour shift! This is a discussion between you and the other resident on OB.
