Curriculum

Our program curriculum focuses on comprehensive women's health care to include rotations in general obstetrics and gynecology, high risk obstetrics, gynecologic oncology, primary care, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, female pelvic health and reconstruction, adolescent gynecology, breast, surgical intensive care experience and a dedicated research block.
A team approach to patient care is an intrinsic part of the Residency Training Program. A fourth-year resident heads each of the Obstetrics and Gynecology services and, in consultation with the attending faculty, is responsible for the patients on that service. Daily rounds with the Ob/Gyn attending physicians provide a close teaching relationship between the faculty and residents.
All residents rotate in continuity clinic one half day per week assuming responsibility for the continuing care of a panel of patients. This allows the resident to:

  • Learn about health promotion/disease prevention, management of chronic and acute medical conditions, routine women's health.
  • Function as part of a health care team providing comprehensive primary care for women with complex and multiple health-related problems.
  • Learn about the system of obstetrics and gynecology health care and practice management.

Our department sponsors conferences including Morbidity and Mortality, Grand Rounds, and Journal clubs. Wednesday didactic conferences utilize the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology Educational Objectives to outline our didactic structure. Our goal is to cover these focused topics on a two year cycle to prepare each resident to become an independent practitioner of obstetrics and gynecology. Each didactic lecture along with the CREOG educational objectives is maintained in a resident resource file in Blackboard and is available to all residents and faculty.
