You are not alone. We know what it’s like because we’ve been there too. Women’s healthcare providers are being asked to see more patients with less time and fewer resources. There are moments in the day, often while in the midst of caring for patients, when you need answers about basic best practices. Trusted medical information often already exists but finding it quickly is a challenge, while the ever increasing virtual mountain of new data makes it even harder to separate the ‘signal’ from the ‘noise’.
We created The ObG Project to be that website, which can provide the information you need, quickly and easily accessible on your mobile device or at your desk, while you are in between patients. We believe passionately that as a community, women’s healthcare professionals have a responsibility to help each other navigate the medical education ‘highway’ quickly and efficiently and remove barriers to knowledge. We want to make your day, work and life easier for you.
To be the primary educational and social resource for women’s healthcare professionals.
Through the use of mobile friendly platforms, The ObG Project will provide knowledge and information that is
We encourage our users to make this site their own by letting us know what you want to learn, share and read more about. As we grow, we will also serve as a community for women’s healthcare providers to connect on issues outside of patient care, highlighting both professional topics and areas of interest outside of their professional hours.
Our management team has come together based on depth of combined experience in women’s healthcare and computer technologies, and you can read our profiles below. To build our medical writing team, we have reached out to individuals with decades of real life experience managing and caring for women and their families. In addition, our writers have served as teachers and mentors, and are passionate believers in life long learning.
