The Section of General Obstetrics and Gynecology provides quality patient-centered care in all aspects of obstetrics and gynecology. We foster a climate of women’s advocacy, excellence in health care and rigorous academic scholarship.

We provide a wide range of care, from health maintenance and healthy pregnancy care to complex conditions including cervical dysplasia, pelvic pain, and cancer prevention. We collaborate closely with our sub-specialties, including the Maternal Fetal Medicine section to manage high-risk pregnancies.  Our members maintain expertise in cutting-edge surgical techniques including advanced laparoscopy and robotically-assisted vaginal hysterectomies.

Our Section plays a critical role in medical education through didactic and clinical teaching for medical students, residents, and fellows.  Our faculty members include the Residency Program Director and co-Director. Nationally, our members serve as American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology examiners and play an active role in the Society of Academic Specialists in General Obstetrics and Gynecology (SASGOG).

Our large patient volume and strong faculty reputation have led to thriving research and scholarship. Our members have received research funding from the National Institutes of Health as well as private foundations, and we have several collaborative projects with investigators in other fields of medicine and science.

Our mission is to improve the health of women through evidence-based, patient-centered clinical care and by contributing to the body of knowledge through scholarship. In the process of achieving this mission, our faculty members have built rewarding academic careers with strong local and national reputations.
