The four-year curriculum has a strong clinical orientation in both inpatient and ambulatory care settings.
Within our program, the requirement of progressive clinical responsibility is met under faculty supervision commensurate with the resident's level of training. As recommended by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology, education in the basic sciences is continuously integrated with clinical experiences.
In the latter years of training the resident is given greater responsibilities in providing patient care within all the subdisciplines within the specialty. The final year of the resident's program must include the responsibilities of a chief resident in accordance with the description of the program as accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education.
