Gynecology and Obstetrics Residency Program
Welcome to The Johns Hopkins Gynecology and Obstetrics Residency Program. Our post-graduate training in gynecology and obstetrics provides a broad range of experience in comprehensive women's health care, as well as an in-depth, focused concentration in appropriate subspecialties. On this site, you’ll find the information you will need to decide if our program is the right match for you.
The goal of our residency training program, led by Betty Chou, M.D., is to train superb, inquisitive physicians who are equipped to become leaders in gynecology and obstetrics. To that end, the department provides four years of comprehensive training in general gynecology and obstetrics as well as significant exposure to the sub-specialties of:
- Gynecologic Oncology
- Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery
- Family Planning
- Maternal-Fetal Medicine
- Minimally Invasive Surgery
- Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility
The program offers a wide variety of experiences in both acute and ambulatory gynecology and obstetrics. Our residents rotate at three different hospitals, Johns Hopkins Hospital (a sub-specialty oriented tertiary care center), Greater Baltimore Medical Center (a large community hospital with a high volume of general obstetrics and gynecology) and John Hopkins Bayview Medical Center (a smaller community hospital staffed by academic general obstetrician/gynecologists with a strong interest in international medicine). In addition, there are numerous opportunities to develop scholarship in research, teaching and patient care.
This is an exciting and dynamic program in which to train. We pride ourselves on working within a "culture of discovery" in which we strive both to seek out and impart new knowledge as well as provide our patients with the best medical care available anywhere. Founded in 1895 by Howard Kelly, our department has been home to such luminaries as Johns Whitridge Williams, Nicholson J. Eastman and Richard TeLinde. Today, our faculty continues this long tradition of excellence. In addition to being intellectually stimulating, ours is a supportive program in which the residents and faculty work as a team. When you visit us you will find a friendly environment that is conducive to forming long-term friendships with faculty and fellow residents. We look forward to meeting with you and learning about your goals as you learn more about us.
