Our department has a rich tradition of excellence as a national leader in the field of obstetrics and gynecology.

We have incredible strengths in people and purpose. We offer expertise in all major specialties of obstetrics and gynecology and provide high quality patient-centered care. We engage in innovative research. As the fourth highest NIH-funded obstetrics and gynecology department in the United States, our collaborative basic, clinical, and translational research initiatives are outstanding. We advance future clinicians and scientists through our nationally recognized educational programs for students, residents, and fellows. Ranked as a top 10 OBGYN residency, our four-year program is the foundation of our educational mission and we train nine residents per year through an academically oriented, evidence-based curriculum. In our team-based environment, our residents care for a diverse patient population alongside supportive and accessible faculty with extensive subspecialty exposure. We are proud advocates for women’s healthcare locally and globally and look forward to future advancements through our mission.
