Clinical Experience

We quickly incorporate residents into patient care to develop clinical and surgical skills in both inpatient and outpatient settings. Residents practice in a combination of urban and community hospitals, allowing for exposure to varied patient populations of high acuity and high volume. All major subspecialties are represented in our OBGYN department with unique clinical opportunities in high-risk obstetrics, family planning and surgical robotics.

Research Experience

There is strong emphasis on research and academic activities for our residents. All residents are required to participate in scholarly activity and are strongly encouraged to publish their research and present at regional or national meetings. To support resident research, we offer dedicated mentorship, a standardized research curriculum and monthly research meetings.

Culture & Resident Life

We create a supportive culture that values work-life balance, open communication and constructive feedback. In the process of professional development, we recognize the importance of building a sense of community, instilling strong values and enjoying your time both in our department and the dynamic city of Philadelphia.
