Residents in our Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Training Program rotate through most services in 2-month blocks, caring for and assuming increasing responsibility for managing the care of both teaching service and private patients as they progress through their training.
Senior residents act as the chief of each service.
A unique aspect of our training schedule is that the first 5 weeks are broken down into separate 1-week rotations to assist the residents in getting acclimated to their new roles.
Rotations include benign gynecology, obstetrics, gynecologic oncology, maternal/fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, and urogynecology and pelvic floor reconstruction.
In addition, residents receive primary care training via rotations in Family Practice, Emergency Medicine, outpatient Internal Medicine, Reproductive Genetics, and anesthesia.
Furthermore, an elective rotation is built into the schedule and tailored to the interests and future plans of the individual resident.
In addition to their training, residents play an important role in the education and supervision of family practice and internal medicine residents, as well as third and fourth year medical students rotating through the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology.
At the conclusion of training, obstetric and gynecology residents are well prepared to independently manage ambulatory patients, perform basic and complex gynecologic procedures, and care for patients with both conventional and challenging obstetric and gynecologic needs.
