The specialty training in Obstetrics and Gynecology (OB/GYN) begins after medical school is completed and the M.D. (Medical Doctor) degree has been earned.  At a time when other physicians are beginning their practice, an OB/GYN specialist undergoes an additional four years of intensive training.  Areas of high risk obstetrics, gynecological surgery, infertility, as well as, special diagnostic studies and treatments related to these areas are studied.  Both comprehensive written and oral examinations must be passed before a doctor can be certified as an OB/GYN specialist.  Continuing study and education are provided by medical conferences and post-graduate courses to keep them abreast of modern techniques and advances.

Obstetrics is the field of medicine dealing with the pregnant woman and her unborn child.  The typical Obstetrician may also see patients in consultation with other physicians regarding special problems or complications that place either the individual or her unborn child at "high risk".  The surgical training of the Obstetrician enables them to perform cesarean sections.  They can perform operations involving the bowel, bladder, uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries, as well as, and other procedures necessary during pregnancy.

By dealing strictly with women, the Gynecologist has also become a specialist in the diagnosis and treatment involving problems with hormonal imbalance and hormone replacement therapy.  Generally, problems that are unique to the female patient falls in the realm of the Gynecologist.  Infertility is becoming increasingly important in the field of Gynecology.

Health care is a very personal and private matter.  The OB/GYN specialist is trained to deal with problems unique to the female patient.  Many women have come to view the OB/GYN specialist as their primary care physician.  They may go years before requiring the attention of a physician outside of the field of OB/GYN, but patients may be referred to another specialist if an examination or diagnosis indicates the need.
