The Department of Women’s Health Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency at Dell Medical School is a fully-accredited, four-year training program designed to deliver knowledge and experience to each of our residents as they prepare for a career as a specialist in general obstetrics and gynecology or continue onto subspecialty fellowship training.
Our program’s purpose reflects the vision and mission of Dell Medical School — to create a vital, inclusive health ecosystem. We train our residents in traditional areas of obstetrics and gynecology including prenatal care, labor and delivery, postpartum care, ambulatory gynecology, and operative gynecologic procedures. Our subspecialty exposure includes female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery, maternal-fetal medicine, reproductive endocrinology and infertility, pediatric and adolescent gynecology, women’s mental health, and genetics. We also infuse innovative, non-traditional curricula designed to develop the “whole” physician. These curricula include value-based care, population health, wellness, research, and the study of the arts and humanities.
Our instruction has been designed with every learner in mind. In addition to the hands-on experience and clinical instruction in our inpatient and ambulatory facilities, we provide more than five hours of protected learning time each week for the delivery of our curricula with formats that include lecture-based grand rounds, simulation and skills workshops, small group discussions, and self-directed learning.
Our ultimate goal is to prepare our residents to deliver the highest-quality, value-based, patient-centered care.
