Obstetrics and Gynecology

Residency

Residency Training

Residents in the IU School of Medicine Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program receive substantial training in obstetrics and gynecology at multiple training sites. This program provides unique opportunities to learn to provide exceptional care for patients.

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and its faculty developed the resident OB-GYN longitudinal care clinics, allowing residents the experience and satisfaction of following patients during the four years of their training. The Night Call rotation minimizes the number of in-house call at all hospitals.

Inter-Professional Training

In addition to receiving excellent training in general obstetrics and gynecology, OB-GYN residents experience many other specialized areas, including colposcopy, laser surgery (LEEP) of the lower genital tract, sexual dysfunction, breast disease, microsurgery, obstetric ultrasound and prenatal diagnosis. Residents also receive training in all the subspecialty areas of obstetrics and gynecology.
