Obstetrics & Gynecology Academic Programs

You could train anywhere in the United States; there are many good residency programs, but none quite like Tulane.
The Tulane Department of Obstetrics & Gynecology offers the combination of educational innovation, patient diversity, research excellence, career advancement and preparation for life-long learning. For these reasons, some have called Tulane "the best kept secret"in residency training programs.

In Obstetrics & Gynecology the resident needs dexterity, practical deductive reasoning, a sharp intellect, and compassion. Many programs teach most of these skills. Our program at Tulane teaches all of them. Our residents are not only outstanding clinicians and surgeons, but excellent teachers and patient advocates.The Tulane Residency in Obstetrics & Gynecology challenges residents to be the best they can in all arenas.

Goals for the four year program.

  • An analytic approach to diagnosing and managing problems in Obstetrics & Gynecology
  • Technical skills to give surgical expertise at completion of the program
  • An appreciation for chronic illnesses in Obstetrics & Gynecology, and their care
  • The assimilate scientific evidence and apply it to all medical decisions
  • Information technology to access on-line medical information
  • The practice of ethical standards in all patient care endeavors
  • Improvement and quality of care by not only assessing one's clinical performance, but by being an example for those around them.

Tulane's patient diversity and award-winning teaching faculty is the strength of our program. The diversity of severity of disease, types of disease and, most importantly, the diversity of people makes for fertile soil for the growth and development of outstanding clinicians. The program seeks individuals with a moral compass… people who see life as something bigger than themselves.

Opportunities for research projects are abundant at Tulane. One research project is required while in the program as a key component of professional development. Small projects such as developing and evaluating quality improvement initiatives within a clinic or hospital setting are indeed practical experiences to have prior to joining any clinical practice. I enjoy mentoring residents in research projects and with your interest and participation, we will continue to contribute to the published literature.
