Things To Know When Interviewing An OBGYN Powered By Docstoc
					OBGYN's are certified medical physicians who specialize in both the
practice of obstetrics and the specialize of gynecology. A doctor who
cares for pregnant women and their baby practices Obstetrics, and a
doctor who diagnoses and treats issues with the female reproductive
system practices Gynecology, and OBGYN's practice both hence the name.
The path to becoming an OB/GYN can begin as early as high school for
young students who are clear that they want to enter the field. At this
point they can begin to accept extra science based classes that will
prepare them to be accepted to a Pre-Medical program at a College or
Institution. During the process of gaining a Bachelor's degree the
scholar will continue to study heavily in the sciences in order to
graduate and be prepared to be accepted into medical school.

  After graduating medical school the alum must pass the licensure test
from the National Board of Medical Examiners and then unlike most medical
graduates who are only required to inclusive internships for a year,
graduates who desire to pursue a career as an OBGYN are required to do a
3 year hospital residency.       During this extended residency the
medical graduate may decide to study related subspecialties like
menopausal gynecology, adolescent gynecology, family planning, oncology,
reproductive endocrinology and perinatology.        After completing the
residency training the graduate can officially become a medical OBGYN
doctor upon passing the local state licensing exam in the state in which
he or she plans to specialize as an OBGYN. It is also very widespread and
highly praised by the OBGYN medical association to be accredited by the
American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.        Other common and
recommended professional associations that licensed OBGYN's can join
and/or be licensed by are:         ACOG- American College of OB/GYN
      ISCD- International Society for Clinical Densitometry     NAMS-
North American Menopause Society       The next step in becoming a
practicing OBGYN is to decide where to practice, and most will either
join a practice or work on a hostpital medical staff. It is at this point
that many of the doctor's specialties can be practiced and offered as
valuable services to their community.        It is not uncommon to find
OB/BYGNs who practice different specialties within the same field. So it
is always a great idea for patients to discuss directly with their doctor
to make sure they are comfortable assisting their certain and individual
needs. For example, should a patient detect that she has cancer in the
female reproductive organs or urinary tract then she would need to see
and OBGYN who specializes in oncology which deals with both the surgical
and non-surgical therapy of these issues.        The topic of family
planning can be a difficult one because of different religious beliefs.
Depending on both the patient's and the doctor's religious beliefs there
may be a difference of opinion on how to approach family planning. So it
is essential for the patient to be open and honest with the doctor about
her views and at the same time ask several itemized questions about the
topics that matter most and determine the right doctor to meet the
patient's needs within their beliefs.        Knowing the path that an
OBGYN take to become authorized can help provide essential information
that will wait on a patient ask the right questions and determine the
right doctor for her situation.        When trying to find an OBGYN
