From the Editor

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are very proud of our new publication, Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology! Our journal is peer-reviewed, and we invite your interest and future submissions.

Our eventual goal is to become listed in PubMed, so your support in submitting the most interesting clinical studies, reviews and basic research manuscripts is particularly valuable as we move forward. In addition to full length articles, we will publish case reports and interesting clinical cases for review by one of our faculty experts. Please see our instructions for authors and instructions for clinical cases/case reports templates.

Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology will be published as an online journal quarterly. In this first issue, you will also find information about the clinical and research divisions in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, as well as recent publications from members of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Iowa.

On behalf of the Editorial Board including Susan Schwartz-Rogers, the Managing Editor, welcome to Proceeding in Obstetrics and Gynecology! We hope you enjoy our inaugural issue.


Kimberly K. Leslie, M.D.
Professor and Head
The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology
