About our obstetrics and gynecology education programs
As part of one of U.S.New & World Report's top ranked medical colleges, Ohio State's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers excellent educational programs for medical students, residents and fellows.
Benefit from our redesigned College of Medicine curriculum
Unlike the traditional medical school model of two years of classroom study followed by two years of clinical experience, our redesigned curriculum takes students out of the classroom and into a clinical setting early in their education. The department has played a vital role in establishing and integrating this clinical experience for our students.
Gain experience within a large tertiary medical center
As a tertiary medical center with one of the largest maternal transport services in the country caring for high-risk pregnancies, as well as an oncology service housed within Ohio State’s Comprehensive Cancer Center – James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute, trainees are exposed to a wide range of clinical problems and pathologic conditions. Students and residents are given the hands-on experience and training necessary to become successful healthcare providers. Learn more about our patient care services.
Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency
The goal of The Ohio State/Mount Carmel Health Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency is to help residents gain the experience and skills they need to become successful healthcare practitioners. The well-rounded program includes outpatient training, inpatient care of complex patients and a structured didactic curriculum that meets all Residency Review Committee (RRC) accreditation requirements and Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG) objectives.
The department offers excellent fellowship programs including the Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) Fellowship and the Gynecologic Oncology Fellowship.
Medical student educational programs
There are educational experiences, courses and a clinical clerkship that the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology offers to medical students. The experiences include the opportunity to participate in the “Lead, Serve, Inspire” curriculum, a clinical clerkship for third-year medical students, as well as introductory courses in the areas of obstetrics, gynecology and oncology.
