Welcome to the New York Medical College Ob/Gyn residency program. The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at New York Medical College is a joint academic program with faculty and residents providing clinical care at both Westchester Medical Center and NYC Health and Hospitals/Metropolitan. The department seeks to provide residents with a comprehensive clinical experience in Obstetrics and Gynecology in both the urban and suburban settings. We provide extensive clinical experiences in general obstetrics and gynecology as well as subspecialty services such a gynecologic oncology, urogynecology/FPMRS, maternal fetal medicine, minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and pelvic pain, family planning, and reproductive endocrinology. Additionally, a large component of the residents clinical training is focused on the care of under-represented minorities and high-risk populations.

Our full-time faculty are all integrally involved in the education of residents. There are regular didactic sessions throughout the week on all services as well as a half day per week of protected didactic time for resident education. The residency didactic schedule includes lectures, journal clubs, colposcopy conference, research meetings, CREOG reviews, and racial disparities in medicine curriculum. There are monthly simulation sessions with the residents to learn gynecologic surgery, obstetric maneuvers, and safety procedures. Multiple members of our faculty have completed the APGO Surgical Education Scholars Program and we continue to promote faculty development to train all of our faculty to be physician educators.

Westchester Medical Center is one of the Regional Perinatal Centers for New York State. Pregnant patients are transferred to Labor and Delivery from 10 affiliate hospitals, covering a seven county region. In addition, Westchester Medical Center’s Institute for Women’s Health and Wellness is devoted to providing comprehensive women’s health to women throughout the Hudson Valley for which Westchester Medical Center is the flagship hospital. Our residents have experience caring for the highest risk patients in obstetrics and complicated gynecologic care.

In summary, we offer an abundance of clinical experience both within New York City and in Westchester County. Our residents graduate as incredible physicians and have found careers in General Ob/Gyn practices or have continued into fellowship training.

Thank you for your interest in our program. Please take some time to explore our website to learn more about what our program has to offer.

Sincerely,
