These are unprecedented times. And we are rising to the challenge. Every day, we work to provide the best OB/GYN training experience in the country. Every day, we work for reproductive and racial justice for all women.
We have not been deterred by the challenges of COVID-19, nor the threats to reproductive choice and the health of our communities because of the Dobbs decision.
The truth is that we are energized. Because of the necessary changes in the state of Wisconsin, we made swift and meaningful additions to enhance our clinical education and actually augmented our Complex Family Planning opportunities. Our world-class advocacy and research into reproductive equity through the Collaborative for Reproductive Equity and other partnerships is even more engaged. Our residents will ultimately have an even greater experience in these areas than ever before and be highly trained in all aspects of clinical obstetrics and gynecology.
Even with a laser focus on this key endeavor, our Department and Program continues to offer the following high-end experiences for our residents:
Our residents train at a world-class university medical center in one of the best cities in the United States.
Outstanding clinical training is the bedrock on which our residency rests. From surgical volume to obstetrical experience to subspecialty rotations and complex family planning, all areas of our clinical and educational missions provide our residents with a comprehensive, robust and frankly amazing training experience.
Working side by side with outstanding faculty, our residents experience progressive responsibility commensurate with their advancing clinical skills. We have several unique features including a Global Health Track, Rural Residency Program, a structured, mentored and supported resident research curriculum, and a focus on surgical simulation.
Our residents are the heart of the UW Department of Ob-Gyn and each one is valued for their uniqueness and strengths. The working and learning environment of our program is built on inclusivity, collaboration, humility, integrity and respect. Each resident is connected to peer and faculty mentors to provide guidance throughout their training. At UW Ob-Gyn, we wholeheartedly believe diversity is a source of strength, creativity and innovation that will help us promote equity in access to quality healthcare. We appreciate the unique contributions of each individual’s identity, culture, background, and experience.
This job is my dream job. I come to work every day remembering the privilege to watch the rising generation of ob-gyns improve women’s health in Madison, Wisconsin, the United States and beyond!
