Welcome From The Program Director

Thank you for your interest in Sinai Hospital of Baltimore's OB/GYN Residency Program!  We are pleased that you are considering our program for your training. We hope that our website will provide you with helpful information regarding our program. While the information provided is an overview, please know that we provide applicants with many other details during the formal interview process.

The OB/GYN program was originally accredited in 1948. Our curriculum is current and dynamic and involves a combination of didactic sessions, simulations, journal clubs and time devoted to research. In addition, global health opportunities are available for residents who have an interest in this ever-expanding field. Residents are exposed to both general obstetrics and gynecology as well as sub-specialties within the discipline. Our core faculty is devoted to developing residents and helping them to be successful in their future careers, whether in private practice, academics or sub-specialty training.

The majority of residents’ training is done at Sinai Hospital of Baltimore. Residents will see a diverse variety of patients in the resident clinic, Sinai Community Care, including uninsured and underinsured women. Patients requiring subspecialty care in the fields of Maternal Fetal Medicine, Gynecologic Oncology, and Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery are also seen at Sinai Hospital. Residents rotate to Johns Hopkins for their Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility experience.
