The course is designed to heighten the awareness for medical students regarding the clinical care of pregnant women and their newborns. Students will increase their knowledge of the medical needs as well as the social, economic, and cultural issues that are unique to this population. MOMS is an elective in which students develop an individual student/patient relationship and follow the medical needs of a pregnant patient, attend diagnostic tests, doctors' appointments, and the birthing process itself. Note that this elective fills up quickly!
