An obstetrician/gynecologist, commonly called as an OB/GYN can serve as a primary physician and often serve as consultants to other physicians.

OB/GYNs can also work public health and preventive medicine administrations.
HOW TO BECOME AN OB/GYN / EDUCATION THAT IS REQUIRED

OB/GYNs also do ultrasounds, reproductive endocrinology, obstetrics and etc.
They also have to experience in primary and preventive care role for the equivalent of at least 6 months of the residency, including inpatient and ambulatory care; diagnosis and management of breast disease and performance and interpretation of diagnostic pelvic and etc.
Have to pass a national exam

COMMON IN OB/GYN WORK
Surgical needlestick injuries are common in obstetrics and gynecology and can cause transmission of viral diseases including hepatitis and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Strategies to reduce the rate of needlestick injuries include using instruments rather than fingers to retract tissue and grasp needles, double gloving, using surgical staplers for skin closure, and substituting blunt tip surgical needles for sharp tip needles where applicable.
