Obstetrics & Gynecology
2016 - 2017

Dear Friends,

For ten years, it has been my great honor to work for the University of Wisconsin-Madison Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology. Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of women and their families in Wisconsin and beyond. We, the UW Ob-Gyn faculty and staff, fulfill this mission in an environment of collaboration, humility, integrity and respect.

As you will see in our 2017 annual update, our five outstanding clinical divisions – General Ob-Gyn, Gynecology and Gynecologic Subspecialties, Gynecologic Oncology, Maternal-Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility – provide state-of-the-art, patient-centered care for women throughout their lives. The newly launched Division of Reproductive and Population Health investigates innovative and practical solutions to the health issues that face women locally, nationally and globally. Our Reproductive Sciences Division conducts cutting edge research into the cellular and molecular functions of pregnancy in animal and human models. Advancing our field importantly includes training the physicians and scientists of the future, including medical students, residents, and fellows, as well as undergraduate and graduate students in related fields.

What our department has accomplished in 2017 is truly remarkable. I hope you enjoy reading and learning more about our year of advancing women’s healthcare through our integrated efforts.


On Wisconsin!
