In order to get your M.D, one must complete 4 years of medical school
Then you must complete a minimum of four years in residency, three of them entirely in obstetrics and gynecology, with a one-year elective.
To practice in the United States, physicians must also pass the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE).

Responsibilities and day to day life of an OB/GYN,
"A big responsibility as an OB/GYN is my patients. Patients are always first, and my schedules prove so to. My day starts very early, and many times ends very late. Births can be unpredictable, and as a OB/GYN I am always on call. Whenever a patient goes into labor it is my job and duty to stop whatever I am doing and attend to my patient. My day is always very hectic, so whenever I have time to breath I take advantage of it, but I love what I do, so I wouldn't trade my restless nights for anything!"
(Nguyen, Tom T., Interview)
Pros and Cons of being an OB/GYN
Pros: highly versatile, never boring, very rewarding patient interactions.
Cons: stress, always on call and long hours, but its all very worth it
