About the program

The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center considers the education of our residents to be one of our most important responsibilities. We are proud to have faculty clinicians and investigators who have been widely recognized for their teaching skills.

Our residents are part of The Ohio State University/Mt. Carmel Health Integrated Training Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology. This exciting program offers the best of two worlds – the strength of a large academic medical center and collaboration among leading community hospitals.

Our fully accredited, four-year residency program consists of 44 residents, who participate in clinical activities at three sites: The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, Mt. Carmel West Hospital and Mt. Carmel St. Ann’s Hospital.

Program Basics

Goals and Objectives

Residency goals and objectives

Our residency program offers outstanding resources for general obstetrics and gynecology and subspecialties, plus a strong base in ambulatory care.

Our goal is to help residents gain the experience and skills they need to become successful healthcare practitioners. Our 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 educational objectives for our residency training program are as follows:

  • To train competent and compassionate clinicians who will deliver state-of-the-art complete health care for women in a humane and personalized manner
  • To provide a solid foundation in general obstetrics and gynecology to prepare the resident for a career in general obstetrics and gynecology or fellowship training
  • To provide residents with a basic understanding of, and appreciation for, research methodology within our specialty. Our goal is to help each resident develop the ability to critically evaluate medical literature and develop a scholarly approach to patient care which she/he will maintain throughout her/his career
  • To help our residents develop a true appreciation and understanding of the diversity within our nation so that they can provide medical care in a compassionate, nonjudgmental manner
