Obstetrical and Colonoscopy Training
All residents receive comprehensive education and ample experience in obstetrics, enough to ensure that all graduates will be able to confidently provide prenatal and obstetrical care to patients. Residents also have the opportunity to first-assist at C-sections.
In addition, throughout their three years of training, residents are regularly scheduled to spend time in nearby Vinton, Iowa, with Dr. Brian Meeker, a family physician who performs colonoscopies. There, under Dr. Meeker’s supervision, residents have the opportunity to learn how to do colonoscopies and, with additional training, to do them themselves.
