The objective of the residency program is to promote the development of the cognitive knowledge and technical skills appropriate to the independent practice of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The department has adopted the Educational Objectives: Core Curriculum for Residents in Obstetrics and Gynecology of the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
Evaluation of the residents relative to the objectives and program expectations is achieved by tracking the residents' clinical experiences/procedures, direct observation and clinical assessment, performance on the CREOG in-service examination, and by performance of graduates including the outcome of the examinations of the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Evaluation is promoted by the continual proximity and intellectual interplay between residents and the program director and faculty.
