Preparing the next generation of OB-GYN doctors

We are pleased you are reviewing our program as a possible site for residency training.

Our institution pairs a world-renowned medical center and hospital that strives to provide the most innovative patient care, teaching and health care research in the nation. This four-year program admits four new residents each year.

The overall goal of our training program is to provide an educational program with sufficient longitudinal experience in the evaluation, diagnosis and management of gynecologic and obstetric conditions to result in the emergence of physicians prepared for independent and competent practice in the specialty. This four-year program has graduated responsibility with each year building on previous experience. Additional educational experiences with specific objectives allow for a broad-based educational opportunity.

Our department currently has the following number of core faculty: one breast-care specialist, one pediatric/adolescent gynecologist, one transgender care specialist, 11 generalists, two gynecologic oncologists, two reproductive endocrinologists, five maternal-fetal medicine specialists, five midwives, and six full-time research professors. 

The residents also rotate with private practice physicians at Methodist Hospital and Methodist Women's Hospital. These rotations account for 12 months out of the 48 months in the program. In the second year of the program, those residents also rotate to the Heartland Center for Reproductive Medicine. 

In addition, there are several other specialists available to our residents in the Olson Center for Women's Health, our main ambulatory site: General Internal Medicine, Diabetes/Endocrine/Metabolism, Reproductive Psychiatry, Plastic Surgery, and Radiology. All of these physicians are dedicated to the training of residents and students and they desire to pass their knowledge on to the next generation of health care professionals.

The Metropolitan Omaha area is growing at a rapid pace and is a wonderful city to live in.  So, please take the time to browse through our other web pages to learn more about us, and to help you make the decision of a lifetime.
