You’ll learn about sexual and reproductive health, including how to effectively interpret gynaecological histories, IVF, and breast, cervical and ovarian screening. You’ll also develop the skills to care for obstetric patients experiencing critical ill health and understand the importance of early detection, to reduce maternal mortality and morbidity. Throughout your studies, you’ll develop a responsive attitude to the needs of childbearing women and their families, reflected in your capacity to assess their needs, make judgements, and plan, implement and evaluate care.
