Becoming part of VCU Health’s rich history of advances in care

When compared to VCU Health’s ob-gyn residency program, few other similar programs in the country can provide the same depth of experience or the widely divergent areas of study and practice as VCU Health. And fewer still have our long history and outstanding reputation for patient care, teaching and research. It’s all the result of an intentional collaboration of respected, recognized clinicians and their dual focus on mentoring each resident and caring for each patient.

As a resident, you’re part of this rich history and benefactor of our program’s successes. You’ll have unparalleled access to ob-gyn specialists and sub-specialists, to advanced equipment and facilities, and to the patient volume to give you hands-on experience and responsibility in all areas of obstetrics and gynecology. Our patients turn to us for care because of our reputation for quality and compassion. And we prepare our residents to provide highly advanced care for these women and their families, and so to meet exciting, life-changing challenges.

As a VCU Health resident in ob-gyn, you’ll learn and participate in care related to:

  • benign gynecology
  • bladder dysfunction
  • cancer care
  • diagnostic ultrasonography
  • emergency services
  • family planning
  • general obstetrics
  • genetics counseling
  • gynecologic endocrinology
  • high-risk obstetrics
  • infertility
  • outpatient surgery
  • urogynecology

Graduate Training Program

With a total of 24 residents, VCU Health’s Graduate Training Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology consists of four years of graduated responsibility. We invite regular reviews from national organizations, and we’re fully accredited by the Residency Review Committee for Obstetrics and Gynecology and the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education.

The VCU Health’s School of Medicine and Medical Center provide a complete array of residency training programs, including exciting offerings in sub-specialty fellowships. Throughout our history, we’ve been diligent and deliberate to develop a strong program that always remains in the forefront of advances in obstetrics and gynecology.

For our residents, this focus translates to a clear commitment to bring together the right people, experiences and facilities to produce the next generation of successful VCU Health residents in obstetrics and gynecology. 

In each experience and every aspect of your time as part of VCU Health’s ob-gyn residency program, you’ll find strong mentors and dedicated colleagues with one goal in mind: to provide you with a sturdy base from which you can ultimately care for patients independently and with great confidence.
