Welcome from the Program Director
Welcome to the Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program at WMed. Our program received accreditation from the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education in April 2017, and our first class of residents started in July 2018.
Our program is designed to educate and train residents in all aspects of our specialty, and prepare our graduates for a career in general practice, academics, fellowship or industry. WMed OB/GYN residents will have rotations in our affiliate hospitals, Bronson Methodist Hospital and Ascension Borgess Hospital, providing a robust and diverse inpatient experience. Outpatient rotations will also include the WMed Clinics at our Oakland Drive Campus, in addition to the hospital sites. Subspecialty rotations begin in the second year, with blocks in maternal-fetal medicine and gynecologic oncology. Female pelvic medicine/reconstructive surgery and reproductive endocrinology are rotations in the third and fourth years. In addition to the clinical experiences, our residents will have weekly protected time for academics and other scheduled activities such as simulation labs and workshops.
Although we are a new program, the OB/GYN department and residency program leadership bring many years of experience at nationally recognized institutions to WMed. Prior to becoming program director of the OB/GYN residency program at WMed, I spent 17 years at Weill Cornell Medical School/New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City, where I was the departmental Vice Chair for Education, Clerkship Director and Associate Program Director.
Dr. Robert Rebar, chair of WMed's Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, has many years of departmental and educational leadership experience at Northwestern University School of Medicine, UCSD School of Medicine, University of Cincinnati School of Medicine, and University of Alabama School of Medicine.
Our program accepts applications through ERAS. We have four categorical positions each year, and applications must include three letters of recommendation, as well as USMLE Step 1 (210) and 2 (220) scores (we do not accept COMLEX scores). We welcome any inquiries and encourage potential applicants to contact us if needed.
