I am pleased to present the second issue of the fourth volume of Proceedings in Obstetrics & Gynecology featuring review articles, original studies and case reports co-authored by residents and medical students. This edition serves as an important professional development opportunity for trainees who work directly with faculty mentors in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology.
This issue contains a broad range of articles with a focus on lower genital tract conditions and areas that are commonly overlooked in the care of women.
With sincere appreciation to Dr. Leslie for the opportunity to contribute to this exciting issue, welcome to Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology,
