In brief: Some are some aren't

Typically training in either of these fields after medical school includes both obstetrics and gynecology.
Most doctors then go on to practice both, at least for some time. However after training some individuals specialize and therefore do just one or the other. In addition specialization may lead to a further defined and limited practice also known as sub-specialization.

Obstetricians are considered obstetricians/gynecologists(ob/gyn)however some ob/gyns do only OB and some do only gyn.
