Obstetrics and Gynecology is one of the four core student clerkships in the U.S., meaning that every student must take a clinical, in-hospital course requiring a small manual; an Ob/Gyn is one of the largest professional specialties, with 41,000 practicing physicians in the U.S. Thus,Obstetrics and Gynecology is always one of the top-selling titles in any medical series. This handbook will be a book that 3rd and 4th year medical students and residents carry in their pockets to answer all the questions and situtations that arise on wards. Ob/Gyn physicians will also be a coreaudience. As this book also presents more information than a standard handbook, it will occupy a unique niche, offering the best features of a small, practical manual and a small textbook of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Dr. Errol Norwitz of Yale is a high-profile U.S. Ob/Gyn physician and is highlyregarded. Dr. Norwitz is also the author of the popular review book, Obstetrics and Gynecology at a Glance.
