CoreCases Curriculum List

- APGO Objectives Videos and Teaching Cases
This is a collection of companion videos to the Medical Student Educational Objectives.

The videos cover a wide range of topics, including:
- Intrapartum Fetal Surveillance

- Pap Smears and Cultures
- Pelvic Floor Disorders
- Preterm Labor
The project was made possible by an unrestricted educational grant to the University of Michigan from the APGO Medical Education Endowment Fund Grant Program.

The reading lists are divided by division (i.e., resident rotations) and PGY level based. Although each is in a slightly different format, all are comprehensive and complete for expected knowledge and reading level.
- NICHD Neonatal Research Network: Extremely Preterm Birth Outcome Data
This Web- based tool is designed to help better inform health care professionals and families about possible infant outcomes (EGA 22-25 wks) based on standardized assessment. The tool uses study data to calculate an infant's probability of health survival. These data are not intended to be predictive of individual infant outcomes. Instead, the data provide a range of possible outcomes based on specific characteristics.
