Obstetrics and Gynecology
Obstetrics and Gynecology department came into being when the School of Medicine opened its doors to students in the fall of 1951. Instruction and clinical experience in this field were prerequisite for the M.D. degree. Lecture courses were given in the second and third years of the four-year medical course and clinical clerkships of approximately six weeks were conducted at the Harbor General and University of California Hospitals. In addition, four-year resident training programs were conducted by the department at both of these hospitals for those desiring to specialize in obstetrics and gynecology.

While the patient services at Harbor and UCLA Hospitals were maintained principally for educational purposes, the care and treatment of the patients was also involved. UCLA had 44 beds devoted to obstetrics and gynecology. Harbor Hospital had 90. The faculty supervised and the resident obstetrician-gynecologists provided the care of the patients admitted to these services. The department also maintained laboratories at the two hospitals in which a variety of research programs in the reproductive physiology and pathology of women were conducted by the members of the staff. Special fields of emphasis were the physiology of pregnancy and the newborn infant, gynecological endocrinology tissue culture, and malignant disease of the female reproductive organs.

A special training program in reproductive physiology was conducted and supervised by Professor Nicholas Assali since 1959. A maximum of four post-residency fellows were accepted for a one- or two-year program designed to further their knowledge of the basic aspects of the specialty and to equip them with research techniques. The purpose of this program, which was financed by the National Institutes of Health, was to fit the registrants for a possible academic career. source
