Established as the standard resource of the obstetrics and gynecology clerkship, Obstetrics and Gynecology is now in its revised Seventh Edition. This is the only clerkship book on the market fully compliant with The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologist (College) guidelines, treatment recommendations, and committee opinions. The text aligns with the Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics' (APGO) educational objectives, upon which most clerkship evaluations and final exams are based and provides key features for self-assessment, including USMLE-style questions.


  • NEW! Table of Contents reflects the restructured and better-organized book divided into six, discrete units.
  • APGO Educational Objectives open chapters to provide students and instructors with a map to key exam topics as well as the “take-away” to aim for.
  • Dual-function readability is accomplished by narrative text that can be read straight through and by the signpost-style headings that readers can use to quickly and easily navigate to crucial spots.
  • NEW! Clinical Pearls flowing liberally through the text are italicized and shaded in yellow to emphasize key points—skim them for quick chapter review!
  • NEW! Chapter-opening Clinical Cases with chapter-closing Clinical Follow-ups frame the chapter material in a real-world clinical context to aid learning and recall.
  • Abundant, full-color illustrations complement text and actively “teach” concepts depicted.
  • Clinical imagery using the most updated technologies correlates with drawn illustrations, including new ultrasounds of common disorders and anomalies such as bicornuate uterus.
  • Tables and Boxes effectively dispersed throughout chapters supplement the text, round out topics, and offer an alternate means of quick review.
  • Appendices include the latest versions of the College’s Women’s Health Record, Well-Woman Care: Assessments & Recommendations, and Antepartum Record.

Industry Reviews

"The areas of obstetrics, gynecology, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, oncology, and maternal-fetal medicine are all well represented. The colorful images and figures are the most striking feature of this edition, providing an added pop to the material."

"This is the definitive book for medical students doing an obstetrics and gynecology rotation, and it has gotten even better with this edition. The use of ACOG and CDC references lend an added layer of authority to the material."

"A[n]...stellar book."
