WELCOME 

Dear Listeners,

Welcome to the APAOG Podcast! I’m the shows’ host and creator Morgan Bechtle and together we’ll explore the science and practice of medicine as it relates to sexual and reproductive health in the past, present, and future. In this series we’ll break down the most common conditions seen in practice, as well as those covered on the PANCE/PANRE. You’ll hear first hand accounts from practicing PA’s, NPs, and OBGYNs. And we’ll go back in time to hear the stories of individuals who have contributed so much to improving the lives of women and shaping the field into what it is today. So whether you are a PA student looking to ace your OBGYN EOR or a practicing PA who wants to review the top OBGYN conditions in preparation for the PANRE, or simply someone wanting to learn more about the ins and outs of sexual and reproductive health, this is the podcast for you!

Happy listening! And remember, stay safe, tell someone you love them, and bring a little kindness into the world.

~ Morgan Bechtle, PA-C
