Program Welcome

Program Directors
The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program at Rush University Medical Center is based in Chicago at an urban, academic medical center which serves a diverse patient population from urban and suburban areas of Illinois. Our nurturing learning community is dedicated to training empathetic and inquisitive physicians who are not only well-prepared to enter specialty practice and subspecialty training, but who serve their patients and communities with a lifelong commitment to bettering health disparities and outcomes.

Our residents develop a strong foundation in OBGYN through core and subspecialty rotations. Evidence-based medicine is emphasized and residents learn to critique the medical literature and care plans to provide excellent care for all patients. Residents are integrated into patient safety and quality improvement initiatives and participate in research across all disciplines. Moreover, we provide training in advocacy and medical education.

At Rush, we value diversity and strive to create an equitable and inclusive program that highlights each person’s unique background and skills. We welcome all applicants who are highly qualified and diverse. Our goal is to foster an environment that welcomes underrepresented in medicine and those who are diverse in terms of culture, class, race/ethnicity, gender, background, and work and life experiences.

Why Choose Rush? We are dedicated to education and high-quality clinical care for all patients and strive to create an inclusive training environment. We actively seek feedback from our residents and work to create a learning environment that supports each person individually and creates a collective team of intelligent and compassionate Obstetrician-Gynecologists.

Chief Residents
On behalf of all of the residents, we are excited that you are interested in learning more about our wonderful program. We at Rush are a group of supportive, inclusive, curious, and passionate residents. We strive to provide our patients with the highest quality evidence-based care while prioritizing the humanistic aspects of medicine and connecting with our community. Our residents are not just a team, we are family. Even after work, we can’t wait to hang out together and go on fun Chicago adventures! We are looking for new additions to our program who share our similar core values and who will bring new ideas that enrich our learning community. We pride ourselves in providing the support for our residents to grow into the people and physicians that they want to be. Our Rush family recognizes that we are better together, and we are looking forward to meeting you soon.
