Residency Program

Educational Objectives

Residents at work

Our goal over the years has been to develop a program in Obstetrics and Gynecology that has the essentials that reflect the growth and development of the specialty itself. Therefore, within the program, we have developed the traditional sub-specialty areas of Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Gynecology Oncology, Reproductive Endocrinology, and Urogynecology.

Residents in meeting

The overall objective of the program is to produce an individual who has had ample clinical experience upon which to base judgment and ample technical experience to allow residents to operate independently for those procedures that would be expected of the practitioner of our specialty. Inpatient teaching has been subdivided into specific rotations that are under the supervision of selected faculty members. These rotations are designed in such a manner that the residents are given graduated levels of experience throughout their training program.
