Mission And Goals

The department provides the highest quality primary, subspecialty, and preventive health care in both inpatient and outpatient settings. The department achieves these goals by:

  • Serving as an advocate for quality health care for women

Residents are eligible for four weeks of vacation during their residency. Grants for the purchase of textbooks for residents personal libraries are available. In addition, residents may receive grants or aid for attendance at educational conferences, meetings and seminars through the institutions Linking Education and Performance, or LEAP program. This program will reimburse a portion of registration fees for qualified employees.


Resident and Program Evaluation

Faculty evaluate residents after the completion of each rotation. These evaluations are available for individual residents to review. On a semiannual basis, the program director completes a formal review with each resident. Once a year, all residents take the CREOG exam, a comprehensive written examination in obstetrics and gynecology. The results, analyzing individual strengths and weaknesses, are reviewed with each resident. Self-study programs are developed for residents as necessary.

The program director and the faculty are open to new ideas and approaches that will ensure a quality residency experience. A semiannual critique session provides an opportunity for interchange among attending staff and residents to share ideas and implement change.
