An obstetrician is a physician who has successfully completed specialized education and training in pregnancy, labor and puerperium (the time-period directly following childbirth).
A gynecologist is a physician who has successfully completed specialized education and training in the health of the female reproductive system, including the diagnosis and treatment of disorders and diseases.
Typically, the education and training for both fields occurs together. An obstetrician/gynecologist, or OB/GYN, is a physician specialist who provides medical and surgical care to women and has particular expertise in pregnancy, childbirth, and disorders of the reproductive system. OB/GYN services include preventative care, prenatal care, detection of sexually transmitted diseases, Pap test screening, and family planning.
