Our program provides residents with meaningful exposure to clinical practice in the field of Obstetrics and Gynecology, while providing a comprehensive didactic program that serves as a foundation for continuous learning in the field.
We prepare residents not only for assuming independent practice responsibilities when they finish, but also to enter any fellowship program on par with residents from other top academic centers. Our residents have pursued rewarding careers in private practice, teaching, research, and fellowships in virtually all subspecialties recognized by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The residency program is designed in accordance with the educational objectives for residents in OB/GYN as outlined by the Council of Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG). In addition, the curriculum is designed to ensure competency in all six of the core competencies required by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME). The primary goals of our program are to:
- Provide a base of factual knowledge in the pre-clinical and clinical aspects of OB/GYN
- Provide supervised exposure to a wide array of patients and clinical conditions, enabling residents to assume progressive responsibility over the four years of training
- Provide each resident with a foundation for continued, lifelong learning
- Enable each graduate to function as an OB/GYN specialist and a primary care physician beyond the reproductive system
- Guide residents in the development of strong interpersonal and communication skills and to exhibit professionalism at all times with patients and colleagues
- Ensure that each resident is familiar with all aspects of the health care system, including evidence-based medicine, systems-based practice, and practice-based learning
