Obstetrics Gynecology Residency Curriculum
We prefer hands-on and interactive teaching over traditional lectures. We value teamwork, camaraderie and a good work-life balance. Be prepared to learn while having fun and staying engaged.
Our obstetrics-gynecology curriculum spans the breadth and depth of our field. And, we are continuously evolving because we value resident feedback and make improvements based on your experiences and needs.
You will be very well supported and transition in level of responsibility in a gradual manner. During each core rotation you will be part of a team where lower level residents feel strongly supported while upper level residents learn to manage and teach.
The Fundamentals Rotation
During the first three weeks of clinical work, residents rotate in pairs through labor and delivery, gyn surgery, and night float. This Fundamentals rotation gives you the foundation needed for the rest of your career.
Our interns begin operating right out of the gate!
Robotic Track offers you the opportunity to train in robotic surgery, with the goal of obtaining privileges by graduation. The curriculum involves online modules, virtual reality training, and a plethora of hands-on experience.
Research Track is available if you are considering fellowship, or are interested in any type of research, from educational to clinical. This curriculum offers extra mentoring and timelines to reach your goals.
