Resident Research in Ob/Gyn

In developing research projects, residents are not left to fend for themselves. All research projects are under the guidance of at least one faculty member. Numerous ideas and concepts are always available, and there are abundant local resources to support residents' investigations. Click here to go to the Resident Research Overview site.
