About The ObG Project

The ObG Project – the why

You are not alone. We know what it’s like because we’ve been there too. Women’s Health and Primary Care professionals are being asked to see more patients with less time and fewer resources. There are moments in the day, often while in the midst of caring for patients, when you need answers about basic best practices. Trusted medical information often already exists but finding it quickly is a challenge, while the ever increasing virtual mountain of new data makes it even harder to separate the ‘signal’ from the ‘noise’.

We created The ObG Project to be that resource, which can provide the information you need, quickly and easily accessible on your mobile device or at your desk, while you are in between patients or catching a few minutes on your commute home. We believe passionately that as a community, we have a responsibility to help each other navigate the medical information ‘highway’ quickly and efficiently and remove barriers to knowledge. We want to make your day, work and life easier for you.

The ObG Project – the what

Our Mission:

To be the primary educational resource for Women’s Health / Primary Care professionals.

Our Vision:

Through the use of mobile friendly platforms, The ObG Project will provide knowledge and information that is

  • Evidence based and oriented to professional standards and guidelines
  • Easily searchable without endless tapping or clicking
  • Practical and action oriented – “what you need when you need it”

We encourage our users to make this site their own by letting us know what you want to learn, share and read more about. 

The ObG Project – the who

Our management team has come together based on depth of combined experience in women’s healthcare and computer technologies, and you can read our profiles below. To build our medical writing team, we have reached out to individuals with decades of real life experience managing and caring for women and their families. In addition, our writers have served as teachers and mentors, and are passionate believers in life long learning.
