About the Program

The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences is composed mostly of both full-time and adjunct faculty and a few part-time obstetricians/gynecologists. The full-time clinical faculty participates in a group private practice in the delivery of health care to women through the use of a team approach. This system provides continuity of care for the patient and a meaningful experience for the resident.

Two additional aspects of Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University's Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences enhance the overall value of its training program. Each service profits greatly by the constant stimulation of students participating in their clerkships in obstetrics, gynecology & reproductive sciences. The fresh and curious input of students assures the dynamic process of learning. Moreover, as a university hospital set in an urban community, Temple is a leader in delivering state-of-the-art medical care to a large indigent population.

Residents are encouraged to participate in research projects and in preparation of manuscripts for publication. The Department is usually able to provide financial support for residents to present their research findings to local or national obstetrical and gynecological meetings. All residents are required to complete at least one research project by December of their senior year.

The resident training and educational program within the Obstetrical and Gynecological Service provides the opportunity to participate in the forefront of many of the exciting areas of contemporary medicine: the dynamics of health care delivery; clinical investigation; teaching; and, most importantly, the thoughtful, efficient and compassionate care of the patient.

The Residency Program in Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences is a four-year program and provides all requirements for certification by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology. The Program is fully accredited by the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education.

The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Sciences is quite proud of its overall commitment to resident education. It is the Department's goal to provide each resident with the optimal environment to maximize his/her professional growth.
