All Residents in the Obstetrics and Gynecology training program are required to participate in a research project under the supervision of a chosen faculty member. These projects are presented at the PGY- 3 level at the Resident Research Forum held annually in June. A First place prize is awarded.

Over the years, our residents have presented their research papers at national scientific meetings, many of which have won awards and gone on to be published in peer-review journals. Other research opportunities are available through individual Faculty for residents who have a special interest or research background.


The teaching program involves members of the faculty, residents, and visiting professors from other departments and institutions. We expect all residents and faculty members to attend these conferences and actively participate. Each clinical service chief also conducts teaching rounds.

The following didactics are offered on a daily/weekly/monthly schedule:

  • Tuesday Morning Conference - Presented weekly by faculty, residents, guest faculty and visiting professors on core OB/GYN topics and ACOG practice bulletins.
  • M & M Conference - Case lists presented monthly by PGY-3 or PGY-4 residents head of service. Services include Labor Unit, GYN, Tumor and Night Float.
  • Journal Club - Monthly at a faculty members home to discuss controversies in OB/GYN.
