Commitment to Teaching

Fundamental to the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Women & Infants Hospital is the commitment to the educational mission at all levels.  The Department is the primary teaching site for The Warren Alpert Medical School of Brown University Undergraduate Medical Education Program for Obstetrics and Gynecology, home to the only Obstetrics and Gynecology residency training program in Rhode Island, and is home to five accredited fellowship training programs. Trainees in these programs benefit from the teaching of outstanding residents, fellows, nurse practitioners, midwives, and physicians.

Department faculty lead and participate in a spectrum of teaching activities for the Undergraduate Medical Education Program, including the preclinical Human Reproduction course, the third-year core and longitudinal clerkship curricula, sub-internships and clinical electives, and resident readiness courses, in addition to mentoring, career advice and residency application assistance.

The Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program provides outstanding and unparalleled training for eight residents per year, the next generation of women’s health leaders and providers. The clinical volume, interaction with and exposure to national leaders in all divisions, mentoring programs, progressive responsibility, and focus on teaching and scholarly work are key features of the education mission for the program. 

Our educational programs in the Department including Division-based Fellowship Programs, the Simulation Program, and the Undergraduate and Graduate Medical Education Programs continue to be national leaders and examples of outstanding, innovative programs.
