Educational Program

The NYMC OB/GYN residency training program offers a continuously evolving educational curriculum which is heavily influenced by the residents’ valuable input and follows the educational objectives and core competencies established by the Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG).

During this 4-year program, our 17 residents divide their time between Westchester Medical Center and Metropolitan Hospital, affording them an incredible breadth and depth of exposure to diverse patient populations, all subspecialties within OB/GYN (gynecologic oncology, maternal fetal medicine, urogynecology, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, pediatric and adolescent gynecology, family planning, reproductive endocrinology and infertility) and essential exposure to primary care in women’s health through their continuity clinics.

In addition to the clinical experience, our residents have protected time for an extensive didactics program at both clinical sites. Each week the residents and attendings dedicate two half-days to teaching at Westchester Medical Center and Metropolitan Hospital, with activities including Grand Rounds, Resident Report, Resident Lecture Series, and Simulation training sessions. Supplementary to the formal didactics program are daily MFM teaching rounds, weekly perinatal-neonatal conference, biweekly perinatal conference, tumor board, pre-op conference, monthly CREOG preparation and weekly board prep review for PGY-4 residents.

Our program is fully supportive of and compliant with the ACGME duty hour regulations, and we understand the importance of resident wellness and wellbeing. Our goal is to provide a high quality educational experience that emphasizes time for adequate rest and out-of-hospital activities. Therefore, all residents have 4 weeks of vacation, and all participate in our established residency wellness program.
