Residency Program Overview

Image of video of Dr. Hebert, Hurley Medical CenterThe Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Training Program at Hurley Medical Center offers an exceptional educational and professional opportunity for residents in this important medical specialty. Following their experience at Hurley, our Obstetrics and Gynecology residents are well prepared to provide in-depth consultative services and effective primary care, or to pursue additional subspecialty fellowship training.

The four-year Obstetrics and Gynecology residency training program is affiliated with the Michigan State University College of Human Medicine and is staffed by board-certified faculty. Our Obstetrics and Gynecology residents receive focused guidance while serving one of the largest and most diverse patient populations in the state. Our ambulatory clinics average about 10,000 outpatient visits per year. Residents, under supervision, provide continuity of care for these patients. Direct experience is provided in general obstetric and gynecologic clinics as well as the specialty clinics, including breast, colposcopy, endocrinology, high-risk obstetrics and oncology.

Work/life balance is an important component of the program; the area offers numerous cultural opportunities and, for those residents that pursue outdoor activities, Michigan’s famous lakes, state parks and natural wonders are just a short drive away.

In the first year of training, 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 patients. During the second year, residents acquire knowledge regarding the medical and obstetric problems of "high-risk" patients. Skills are also developed in the diagnosis and management of the gynecologic patient. The third year provides 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. In the fourth year, residents become chief residents and become responsible for their junior colleagues, supervise the staff consultation service and undertake the management of the more difficult gynecologic and obstetric patient.

Responsibility for Patient Care
