Medical Education : Residency

Residency

In partnership with Jackson Memorial Hospital, the program offers 36 categorical positions (nine at each level) as part of its fully accredited four-year residency program. The department values diversity and prides itself in selecting physicians from different social, ethnic, geographic and academic backgrounds. Aside from providing residents with comprehensive training in the discipline of obstetrics and gynecology, the department aims to engage residents in a lifelong commitment to the promotion of women’s health care. Our graduates understand the medical, social, economic and cultural contexts of patient care and are poised to be leaders in general and subspecialty practices.

Through lectures, small group conferences, simulation, individual instruction, bedside teaching, operative experience, independent reading, and direct patient care, residents will acquire knowledge and skills in:

  • Gynecology

  • Primary and Ambulatory Care
  • Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI)
  • Minimally Invasive Surgery

The residents are also provided with focused teaching and training in minimally invasive gynecology.
