Sidney Kimmel Medical College

Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology


A Message from our Chairman William D. Schlaff, MD

“Our mission is to provide outstanding, patient-centered care, which serves as the basis of our contributions to education, scholarship and advocacy in our university and throughout our local and global communities.”


Research Program

Our faculty and trainees conduct research that makes a difference. Our patient-centered research directly impacts clinical practice here, at Jefferson Health, and worldwide. Research is a core facet of our OBGYN department and, therefore, our education programs. Our team prioritizes trainees’ research endeavors and productivity, offering dedicated research support and guidance across our OBGYN subspecialties. 


Diversity & Inclusion

The Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology believes that diversity makes us a stronger and better place to work and learn. We have a shared commitment to increase the diversity of our trainees as well as our faculty and staff. We take a broad view of diversity and value the qualities that make us each unique and the contributions we each make to the whole. Our trainees are exposed to diverse clinical environments with the goal of preparing them to be among the most culturally competent physicians in the nation. As a department and institution, we are dedicated to addressing the bias and discrimination pervasive in healthcare and ending disparities in care in our larger community.
