Obstetrics & Gynecology


NuHealth’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has a rich heritage of resident education, community service and faculty members dedicated to the educational mission of the residency program.

Resident education here is characterized by formal teaching, direct clinical supervision, and graduated patient responsibility. There is broad exposure to basic obstetrics and gynecology, all of the subspecialties, excellent clinical and surgical volume, and a strong emphasis on the ambulatory health care of women. Residents participate in the care of all patients, with the goal of becoming competent and sensitive health care providers. Our subspecialty divisions include Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Gynecology Oncology, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, Urogynecology and Gynecologic Laparoscopy. There is also an experienced cadre of full-time generalists in Obstetrics and Gynecology, and many voluntary staff members, all of whom have a strong interest in resident education and research.

We encourage you to become familiar with the exceptional educational opportunities available
within our program.
