The IU School of Medicine Department of Family Medicine offers many specialized tracks for residents in the IU Methodist Family Medicine Residency program. Residents can select from any of the available tracks.
Women's Health Track
The Women’s Health Track allows residents an increased concentration in both obstetrics and gynecology. With the guidance of practicing family medicine faculty, family medicine residents gain obstetrics experience with several faculty physicians privileged in operative obstetrics. During the second and third year of residency training, residents on this track are assigned to an outreach obstetric clinic, a federally qualified health center, as one of their continuity clinics, where IU School of Medicine faculty provide patient services. This clinical setting allows for increased outpatient management of women’s health in obstetrics and gynecologic procedures. This track includes focused experience in ultrasound services, support to attend formal ultrasound courses and additional electives in Women’s Health. Call systems are developed with participants for cesarean deliveries, tubal ligations and D&Cs with the Family Medicine faculty. Participants in this track are encouraged to participate in monthly journal club.
