Medical Student Electives at North Shore University Hospital
Sponsor: Burton Rochelson, MD
Sponsor: John L. Lovecchio, MD
This elective in Gynecologic Oncology will be offered all year. The assignment will encourage involvement in all activities of the Gynecologic Oncology Service. Emphasis will be placed on pre-treatment evaluation of patients, modalities of therapy available (surgery, radiotherapy and chemotherapy) and the principles on which the choice of treatment is made. During the rotation, students will have the opportunity to see all types of GYN malignancies. The student will have the opportunity to participate in Team Rounds and a wide variety of operative cases. In addition to in-hospital care, the student also will be exposed to office management of gynecologic oncology patients. Students will be encouraged to attend all Grand Rounds and also will have the opportunity to attend formal and informal didactic sessions with direct emphasis on various aspects of gynecologic oncology, including our regular Tumor Conference.
REPRODUCTIVE END OCRINOLOGY/UROGYNECOLOGY
Sponsors: Gerald Scholl, MD and Harvey Winkler, MD
This elective will permit students to spend two weeks on Reproductive Endocrinology and two weeks on Urogynecology. On Reproductive Endocrinology, the student will participate in the diagnosis and treatment of infertility and other female reproductive tract disorders. The student will also be involved in office hours, the operating room, in-vitro fertilization procedures and the Andrology and Embryology laboratories.
Urogynecology is a sub-specialty of Obstetrics & Gynecology, which involves care of women with specialized pelvic floor disorders such as urinary and fecal incontinence, pelvic prolapse (descent of the female organs), chronic pain of the bladder and vulva, evaluation of urinary tract infections and hematuria, as well as evaluation and treatment of sexual dysfunction. The two-week portion in this rotation would include four to six operative days in total with each of the three urogynecology attending physicians. Every attempt would be made for the rotating student to observe a combination of laparascopic/robotic, abdominal and transvaginal surgical procedures. The remaining four days will be an office experience with the attending physicians to see how the out-patient evaluation and treatment of the above disorders are structured. In addition, the rotating student will have an opportunity to shadow our nurse practitioners and physician's assistants to observe counseling and physical therapy, which are essential for treating our patients.

MINIMALLY INVASIVE GYNECOLOGIC SURGERY

This elective, available from August through December, will span four weeks, during which time the student's time will be divided amongst minimally invasive surgical cases (both in the ambulatory and main operative room), the post-operative care of in-patients undergoing minimally invasive surgery and the Laparoscopic Surgery Training Laboratory. Throughout the elective, the student will participate in the Department of OBGYN residency didactic program, as well as the laparoscopic lecture series sponsored by the Section of Minimally Invasive Surgery in the Department of Surgery. It is expected that a brief presentation on an area of interest in Minimally Invasive Surgery will be made at the conclusion of the rotation.
