The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology promotes excellence in women’s care research by providing our Residents and Fellows with opportunities to explore research areas. As we strive to initiate and complete new research projects, programs and direction at the faculty level, the department encourages the involvement of our OBGYN Residents and Fellows. This is both to garner interest for future clinician scientists as well as to educate our trainees about research processes and methodology.
