Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Program


Program

The residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology is a fully accredited four-year program designed to meet the requirements of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Residency Review Committee for Obstetrics and Gynecology. It is a graded non-pyramid program into which five residents are accepted each year at the PGY I level and who progress through the program acquiring increasing responsibility at each succeeding level. The training program is structured to allow the resident to develop independence of thought and action by providing increasing levels of experience under supervision. Extensive on-site, in-house faculty subspecialty expertise and patient population make it possible to acquire the total educational experience on campus.

The major educational objective of the program is to provide the highest quality education and training leading to board certification, and to prepare the resident for the dual roles of primary physician for women as well as consultant obstetrician/gynecologist. The resident will be prepared to enter a career pathway leading to either clinical practice or subspecialty training.
