A supervised genetics examination was administered to 76 obstetrics and gynecology (ob/gyn) residents from 15 different institutions in the Philadelphia area.
The questions were specifically designed to be applicable to obstetrical practice.
Overall, the mean score was 69% (range 32%-88%). Using the nonparametric Mann-Whitney rank sum test, we found that the 25 residents from institutions with an obstetrics-gynecology-genetics (OGG) program, coordinated by an obstetrician /gynecologist board certified in clinical genetics, had statistically significant higher scores than the remaining 51 residents from institutions without an OGG program (77% vs. 65%, respectively; P<.001).
