General Information

Elements of the Residency Program 

The Department and its faculty are committed to resident education. To that end, we have developed the resident OB/GYN longitudinal care clinics, allowing residents the experience and satisfaction of following patients during the four years of their training. We have developed and supported the Night Call rotation to minimize the number of "36-hour days" and our faculty members have in-house call at all  hospitals. 

The Department supports resident's travel to postgraduate meetings and courses for all residents. First-year residents receive a stipend to begin their personal library of OB/GYN texts. 

As part of the education experience, all 3rd year residents are expected to complete a formal research project of publishable quality and present the results of the research at the Annual Residents' Day. This is held in conjunction with the Charles A. Hunter, Jr., Lecture and the Resident Banquet honoring the Chief Residents in June of each year.

In addition to receiving excellent training in general Obstetrics and Gynecology, residents have experience in many other specialized areas. These include: colposcopy, laser surgery LEEP of the lower genital tract, sexual dysfunction, breast disease, microsurgery, obstetric ultrasound, and prenatal diagnosis. Residents also receive training in all of the subspecialty areas of Obstetrics and Gynecology. 

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology is also responsible for educating junior and senior medical students. In addition to undergraduates, our department is responsible for a portion of the resident training of Family Practice residents, Pediatric residents, and Internal Medicine residents. OB/GYN residents are expected to take an active part in this education activity.
