Job Description for Obstetrician or Gynecologist

Obstetricians are physicians that provide care to women before, during and immediately after childbirth. Gynecologists are physicians that focus on women's health, specifically female reproductive systems and the breasts. These doctors provide routine care to patients such as prescribing medications, analyzing test results, discussing preventative care, and discussing procedures, medicines and test results with patients. They also work to treat diseases or injuries by prescribing medicines and administering therapy, and obstetricians often deliver babies as part of their regular work. Obstetricians and gynecologists may be tasked with providing emergency care for patients as well. They refer patients to providers in other specialities for additional care as needed, and these doctors generally work with other medical staff such as nurses, physician's assistants, interns, other doctors and administrative professionals.
