Curriculum

First Year Clinical Rotations

The rotational assignments in the PGY-1 year are designed to develop a strong foundation in the fundamental concepts of obstetrics and gynecology. Residents receive training in basic ultrasound techniques by spending time in our state-of-the-art obstetrics and gynecology ultrasound units during the REI/Ultrasound block. A rotation in Primary and Preventive Ambulatory Care provides residents with a firm clinical base on which to build their skills in patient care.

Third year residents also have an Elective rotation, which they may use to pursue specialized clinical training or research, either in-house or at an outside institution.
