Obstetrics and Gynecology is an exciting field that now encompasses not just the recognized subspecialties of Gynecologic Oncology, Maternal Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and Urogynecology and Reconstructive Pelvic Surgery but also such diverse arenas as reproductive genetics, immunology, infectious diseases, and behavioral medicine. In addition, the role of the obstetrician-gynecologist as a primary care provider is receiving increased attention and recognition.

The purpose of this four-year training program is to educate the resident in the entire breadth of the discipline of obstetrics and gynecology and to foster a lifelong commitment to the promotion of women's health care. The resident will acquire cognitive knowledge, technical skills, and interpersonal skills through didactic lectures, small group conferences, audiovisual media, simulation/drills, individual instruction, independent reading, and direct patient care. Upon successful completion of the training program, the resident will be fully prepared for the general practice of obstetrics and gynecology and for further training in a subspecialty discipline. The department is firmly committed to helping each resident recognize their full academic, clinical, and personal potential within an intellectually stimulating and emotionally supportive environment.
