The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program is a four-year program which includes rotations in:
Residents also participate in patient care (Continuity Clinics) within the University Women’s Health Center on a regularly scheduled basis.
- Gynecologic Oncology
- Reproductive Endocrinology & Infertility
- Geriatric Gynecology
- Emergency Medicine
- Surgical Services
- Pediatric and Adolescent Outpatient Gynecology
Weekly Didactics include Grand Rounds, Stats Conference, and Team Based Learning. Other specialty conferences are offered on a once-a-month basis including Journal Club, Research Lecture/Project Reports. We also feature learning experiences through telecommunication with UAMS teleconferencing/telemedicine reaching over 70 sites across Arkansas.
Simulators are used to aid in the education of residents as well as provide updates for OB/GYN faculty members. A surgical skills class is mandatory for every first year resident offering the resident an opportunity to improve their skills in wound closure.
Access to an on-site library, computers and books in the call room, and department researchers and faculty offers continual opportunities for research and academic growth within Obstetrics and Gynecology. Research projects are presented by the level three residents at the end of each year and are then encouraged to present and/or publish their research projects outside of the UAMS arena in the level four year.
