Meet Our OB/GYN Residency Faculty

Extraordinary teachers, role models, and mentors.

Our Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program helps you learn and grow under the guise of a superb faculty, skilled as both generalists and subspecialists. During your time, you’ll develop very close ties with our team. As a resident, you’ll interact directly with the faculty and scrub on the most complex cases, including all cancer and pelvic reconstruction procedures. This close-knit relationship will help you prepare for any fellowship you decide to pursue.
