OB care in family medicine


Fam Pract Manag. 2007 Sep;14(8):11.

Dr. Sarina Schrager's “Balancing a Personal Life OB Care” [June 2007] crystallized the message I have been trying, mostly unsuccessfully, to get across to medical students and residents. I am hopeful that her practical eloquence will help others understand that incorporating this very rewarding and interesting area into one's practice does not mean a loss of personal life. There is nothing like the voice of experience from someone like Dr. Schrager to enlighten others. After reading this, maybe more of our students, residents and colleagues will choose to include obstetrics in their scope of practice. Our presence in OB care is much needed!
