Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to the second issue of the second volume of Proceedings in Obstetrics and Gynecology. I am pleased to serve as the guest editor of this issue, which is focused on topics related to general obstetrics and gynecology. I have been a faculty member in the Division of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Iowa since 2010 and the Division Director since July 2011.
This issue contains a broad range of very interesting articles, including case reports, hot topic articles, and highlights from the Obstetrics and Gynecology Post-Graduate Course that was recently held at the UI. For a description of our Division’s current activities, please read the Topics of Interest section. I am pleased to have contributed to this exciting issue of 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.
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 current issue.
Thomas Gellhaus, MD Director, Division of Obstetrics and Gynecology Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology The University of Iowa
