Residency Program Structure

Over the course of our four-year curriculum, our residents will gather comprehensive clinical and surgical competence in order to succeed in general ob/gyn practice, subspecialty fellowship training and/or academic medicine after graduation. Our carefully designed resident clinical rotation schedule, didactic curriculum and simulation programs help to ensure this goal.
