Welcome to St.Vincent Hospital's Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program
The Ob/Gyn Residency Program at St.Vincent Hospital is dedicated to providing resident physicians the opportunity to develop their full potential as providers of primary health care for women. The program, fully accredited by the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) accepts five residents per year into its four-year training program. Reviewed in February 2010, the ACGME accredited this program for five years, the maximum cycle length allowed.
The high volume of our Obstetrics and Gynecology patient base allows our residents to gain vast experience in all aspects of women's health care. Residents are provided with vast experience in general Ob/Gyn and Primary Care, as well as specialized areas such as Gynecologic Oncology, Maternal Fetal Medicine, Reproductive Endocrinology/Infertility and Urogynecology.
St.Vincent Women's Hospital is the focus of activities for inpatient obstetrics service. However, a wide range of family-oriented obstetric and nursery care is available to the community. Resident physicians provide ambulatory, outpatient care at the Joshua Max Simon Primary Care Center, which opened in 2007. The Ob/Gyn outpatient center had over 22,500 visits last year. To meet the needs of our growing population, we underwent major renovation/expansion, taking it from 12 to 22 exam rooms, 3 NST rooms, 2 procedure rooms and a newly purchased 3D/4D GE Ultrasound machine.
Mutual respect and collegial interdependence between faculty and housestaff best categorizes our work environment. The St.Vincent Ob/Gyn Residency Program prepares residents to reach their full potential as practicing physicians.
St.Vincent Hospital is a member of St.Vincent Health System, a values-based alliance of local healthcare providers, as well as Ascension Health, which is national Catholic health ministry. Ascension Health is the largest not-for profit health care organization in the United States.
Central to our program are the St.Vincent Core Values: Service of the Poor, Reverence, Integrity, Wisdom, Creativity and Dedication. We strive to recognize and provide an approach to patient care that emphasizes the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of patients and their families, as well as health care professionals.
