Cutler and Cox to become Associate Program Directors of UW Ob-Gyn Residency

Abigail Cutler, MD, MPH, assistant professor in the Division of Academic Specialists in Ob-Gyn, and Caroline Cox, MD, incoming assistant professor in the Division of Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery, will become Associate Program Directors of the UW Ob-Gyn Residency Program in September 2023. Cutler and Cox will join incoming Residency Program Director Bridget Kelly, MD, on the residency leadership team.

Cutler joined our department in August 2021. Since arriving in Wisconsin, she has taken a leading role in resident education around family planning. She became director of our department’s Ryan Residency Program in 2022, has developed new family planning curriculum for our trainees, and worked tirelessly since last summer to organize an away rotation that allows residents to gain necessary skills and experience outside of Wisconsin. Cutler’s expertise and insight will be invaluable in this role.

Cox, who will join our department in September, has demonstrated a strong commitment to resident education throughout her career. During her residency here at UW, she was one of only two members of the UW Medical Board. She has been active in resident education as a faculty member at the University of Pennsylvania, including serving as director of gynecology simulation and preoperative curriculum, urogynecology educator, and a member of the resident mentorship and residency clinical competency committees.

Congratulations, Dr. Cutler and Dr. Cox, on these new roles! You will be exceptional educators, leaders, and champions for our residents.
