The Lankenau Medical Center’s fourth-year clinical clerkship for medical students consists of four weeks. This inpatient acting internship focuses on obstetrics. This includes the delivery room, postpartum and ante partum/high-risk floors.

While on this service you are under the direction of the obstetrics chief who will give you your assignments during the rotation. While on the obstetrics service, you gain valuable experience on labor and delivery, ante partum unit (APU) and the mother baby unit. With five maternal-fetal medicine specialists and a level III NICU you will have ample exposure to both normal and high risk deliveries. You will have contact with both private and clinic patient population and will witness a variety of delivery methods including vacuum, forceps and cesarean sections. You will be expected to follow patients from admission to delivery when possible. You will also be responsible for presenting a topic during a resident led conference (morning report) which is held on Friday mornings.

We can only have one student per four-week rotation. If you are interested in applying please contact Rosemarie Weisenbach (weisenbachr@mlhs.org) with your dates and an application will be sent to you.  Please, no phone calls.
