    • You should arrive for rounds. Scope out the patients who are likely to deliver soon. The ob/gyn residents can teach you how to do this by looking at their board and the tocographic monitoring. You will be seeing patients in the OB Triage area. This is a good time to practice pelvic exams and learn how to manage 2nd and 3rd trimester OB emergencies. Your main objective is to get the 10 deliveries that you need to log for the ACGME and feel comfortable with uncomplicated deliveries. Also, use this time to learn about third trimester complications. Bring reading material for the downtime between deliveries.
