Gynecologic disorders are often in the differential diagnosis on surgical consultation. To provide a deeper understanding of this complex field, the Sinai surgical residents will rotate in the Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology at Sinai Hospital at the end of their 2nd clinical year.
To maximize exposure and relevance to the General Surgery resident, the rotation will be split into 3 weeks of General GYN and 3 weeks of GYN-Oncology. The resident will participate in the same rotational call schedule as the 2nd year GYN resident and be exposed to labor and delivery related issues as well as emergency GYN consults throughout the rotation when on call.
The Sinai resident will be an integral member of the OB-GYN team, under the supervision of the senior/chief OB-GYN resident(s) and attending staff and will be working with experienced OB-GYN mid-level provider(s). As such, the surgical residents will participate in all care rendered to inpatient OB-GYN patients at Sinai Hospital, including admission, consultation and diagnostic work-up, surgical procedures, post-operative care and discharge, as well as various clinic and attending office hours.
Education is a central feature of Sinai's independent GYN residency: weekly teaching rounds, OB/GYN lecture series, GYN Tumor Board, as mewl as monthly OB-GYN Journal Club, and GYN Morbidity and Mortality conference. In addition to this, the GYN faculty will provide lectures on topics relevant to general surgeons throughout the surgery specialty curriculum.
