Advertisers and readers start the year in style, with the redesigned January 2016 issue featuring a fresh look, expanded infographics and larger images. Throughout the year, OB.GYN. NEWS® will publish a series of articles on the specialty’s history, challenges, and future, given how things have changed – and remain the same – since 1966.

The January issue includes a snapshot of the field in 1966 as Mary Ellen Schneider, Managing Editor takes “A Look Back at 1966.” In his essay on the evolution of the specialty and the physician-patient relationship, Dr. Ronald J. Pion, a fellow of ACOG and a clinical professor at the UCLA School of Medicine, with a 50-year history in practice comments, “One of the most exciting, and essential, changes that I have seen since I began my career is the voice of the woman in ob.gyn. care.” He continues, “It makes sense that our specialty has changed, because we are the only specialty dedicated to women, and the last 50 years have brought about intense societal change for women.”

In addition to award-winning news coverage that continues to make OB.GYN. NEWS® the leading news source for the specialty, subsequent issues and exclusive online ( videos, audio, and photo essays celebrating its 50th anniversary will look at changes in gynecology surgery; feature a roundtable video discussion on contraception; highlight trends in minimally-invasive surgery; detail advances in assisted reproductive technology and infertility treatment; feature a special edition of the Master Class in obstetrics; and examine the transformation of the well-woman visit. Features that examine hard-hitting issues of concern to the specialty will include the growth of accredited subspecialties and how they’ve changed practice; a profile of the new Ob.Gyn. resident timed to coincide with Match Day; and an exclusive column, Drugs, Pregnancy, and Lactation, highlighting the major advances and unanswered issues regarding drug safety during pregnancy and lactation.
