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. 

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.
