Overview

The Aquifer Obstetrics & Gynecology case set covers topics recommended by leading Obstetrics & Gynecology clerkship directors and places students in realistic patient scenarios, developing their clinical reasoning skills. The cases foster self-directed and independent study, centers clinical problem-solving, and teaches an evidence-based, patient-centered approach to patient care.

Publishing July 1, 2024, the initial case set covers multiple topics including fetal growth restriction, endometrial hyperplasia, and premenstrual dysphoric disorder. Additional cases will release on a rolling basis throughout the academic year, culminating in more than 20 virtual patient cases.

For Academic Year 2024-45, this case set is only available for Curricular Partner programs. In Academic Year 2025-26, it will be available for limited subscribers as a Signature Course.

Aquifer created the OBGYN case set to health professions students up for success. The United States faces increasing maternal death rates (CDC), with 84% of pregnancy-related deaths deemed preventable by the CDC. (CDC) Outcomes for women of color are even worse (CDC). And 20% of patients who see an OBGYN refer to that individual as their Primary Care Physician (NIH). This positions health care professionals working in the OBGYN space with significant opportunities to improve patient outcomes and experience.
