Granting Obstetric Privileges
Granting Privileges
The following list has been developed to aid in granting privileges to those
health care providers within the facility to perform obstetric and gynecologic
procedures. The granting of privileges at any level in obstetrics and gynecol-
ogy is based on satisfaction of criteria for the specified procedures. Criteria
for granting privileges must be applied consistently regardless of the appli-
cant’s specialty. As stated, the granting of clinical privileges must be based
on training, experience, and demonstrated current clinical competence. The
educational requirements assume that applicants have achieved a doctor of
medicine or doctor of osteopathy degree. Except as otherwise noted, prereq-
uisites for each category of privileges are listed as follows:
Successful completion of an Accreditation Council for Graduate
Medical Education (ACGME)-accredited residency program in
Board certification (or active candidate) by the American Board of
Obstetrics and Gynecology or the American Osteopathic Board of
Obstetrics and Gynecology
