The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Training Program meets all educational requirements of the American Board of Obstetric and Gynecology. Over the course of the four-year training program, residents begin by acquiring the skills necessary to provide care for low-risk gynecologic patients. As they gain additional knowledge and experience, Obstetrics and Gynecology residents work with high-risk patients, manage difficult obstetric problems and perform gynecologic surgeries. By the final year of residency training, they also serve as chief residents and supervisors of staff and junior colleagues.
OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY RESIDENCY ROADMAP
Obstetrics and Gynecology residents concentrate on the acquisition of psychomotor, cognitive and attitudinal skills necessary to provide care for the uncomplicated gynecologic or low-risk obstetric patient.
Residents acquire knowledge regarding the medical and obstetric problems of high-risk patients and develop skills in the diagnosis and management of the gynecologic patient.
Obstetrics and Gynecology residents are provided with increasing responsibility for preoperative and postoperative care, the management of difficult obstetrical problems and the performance of a variety of gynecologic surgeries. Residents are also expected to maintain an active interest in the application of the basic medical sciences.
Residents become chief residents and take on responsibility for junior colleagues, supervision of the staff consultation services, and management of more difficult gynecologic and obstetric patients.
During the 48-month residency program, the obstetrics and gynecology program rotations include exposure to the following areas:
- Ambulatory medicine
- Assisted reproduction/IVF
- Emergency medicine
- Gynecologic oncology
- Gynecologic surgery
- Intensive care
- Neonatal intensive care
- Perinatal medicine
- Primary care

OBSTETRICS AND GYNECOLOGY RESIDENCY PROGRAM FEATURES
Our ambulatory clinics average approximately 10,000 outpatient visits per year. Residents, under supervision, provide continuity of care for these patients. Experience is provided in general obstetric and gynecologic clinics as well as the specialty clinics, including breast, colposcopy, endocrinology, high-risk obstetrics and oncology.
Our residency training program has proven to be a successful entry point for post-residency subspecialty fellowship training.
