OB/GYN Residency About the Program


Our curriculum follows the basic guidelines outlined by the Council on Residency Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG), allowing for graduating residents' board eligibility for American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ABOG) certification.


In addition, the residency program allows for specialty conferences on Thursday mornings and protected didactics time on Fridays. Conferences and didactics include Morbidity and Mortality, Grand Rounds, Tumor Board, Billing and Coding, research seminars, and interdisciplinary simulations.


All residents are required to complete a research project under the guidance of a faculty mentor and present at the annual Resident Research Day Symposium in the third year of training. Awards are given at graduation. Residents with research projects who are accepted to regional or national meetings are generally sponsored to attend, therefore residents are encouraged to submit their projects to local, regional and national conferences. A statistician is available to assist residents with their data collection and interpretation.



Intern Year

During their 3 months on Obstetrics (OB), interns master vaginal deliveries, primary cesarean sections, and OB triage. They are exposed to maternal-fetal medicine (MFM) by participating in a high-risk OB clinic. Interns spend 3 months on night float (NF) 5 days a week (Sunday through Thursday). During 2 months on Gynecology (GYN) and 1 month on Gynecologic Oncology (GYN ONC), interns learn how to perform ambulatory surgery and take care of inpatients. Two weeks are devoted to the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and 2 weeks to OB Ultrasound (Sono). One month in the Emergency Room (ER) and 1 month in the Surgical Intensive Care Unit (SICU) allow interns to broaden their understanding of a wide range of disease states and complications.


Second Year

During their second year, the residents' responsibility and autonomy grows. During 3 months of OB, the second years perform more complicated cesarean sections and operative vaginal deliveries. Three months are spent on NF and one month on GYN. Exposure to the subspecialties is achieved early on, with 1 month of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI), 1 month of Urogynecology (URO), and 3 months of GYN ONC. There is an opportunity for a research or subspecialty elective for those who are interested.


Third Year

Third-year residents assume responsibilities as senior residents during 3 months of OB, 3 months of GYN, and 2 months of NF. They spend 2 months as senior residents on the MFM service and 1 month on GYN ONC. One month is spent in an ambulatory setting and includes an opportunity for individualized education with a breast surgeon.


Fourth Year

During the chief year, residents are granted considerable autonomy and play a key role in medical student and resident education during 3 months of OB, 3 months of GYN, 2 months of GYN ONC, 1 month of NF, 1 month of URO, and 1 month of MFM. One month is spent in an ambulatory setting of the residents' choice. There is an opportunity for an elective rotation for those who are interested.

Stipends and Benefits

Educational allowances for the CREOG Leadership Conference and a CME Board Review course are allotted during the residency in the PGY 3 and 4 years. The stipends are competitive and the administrative chief receives an additional amount secondary to his or her duties. Vacation, sick leave and maternity/paternity leave are provided and, along with insurance and health benefits information, will be discussed further during formal interviews.
