OB/GYN Residents

The educational curriculum is based on the educational objectives established by CREOG. Throughout all four years, residents receive continuous experience in outpatient general obstetrics and gynecology.  All levels of residents also regularly work with the maternal fetal medicine specialists during their obstetrics and night call rotations.


During the first year of training, residents rotate through the core rotations of obstetrics, gynecology, and outpatient clinic/ultrasound to establish a firm foundation in clinical knowledge.


First-year residents are assigned a rotation in GYN Oncology.


Second-year residents continue to improve their base of clinical knowledge with core rotations but expand into subspecialties with rotations in reproductive endocrinology and gynecologic oncology.  Second-year residents are also given the opportunity to work with the minimally invasive gynecologic surgery fellows and attendings.  


Third-year residents have further expanded roles with subspecialists in REI, oncology, MIGS, and urogynecology as well as continuing roles with core rotations.   Our program has also established an optional elective month in surgical intensive care for residents in their second or third year of training.


Fourth-year residents each assume administrative and educational chief responsibilities while supervising lower level residents on core rotations. There is an opportunity during the final year of training for chief residents to tailor their educational experiences to suit their future endeavors.
