Obstetrics and Gynecology

These rotations are similar to the PGY-2 year rotations, with the exception of a graduated increase in the amount of responsibility and a focused two month high-risk obstetrics rotation.


Experience in the diagnosis and management of clinical gynecologic endocrinology and infertility problems occurs during this rotation. The resident will participate in the care of these patients with the direct supervision of the reproductive endocrine faculty.

Gynecologic Surgery

The purpose of this rotation is to introduce the third-year resident to a broad spectrum of gynecologic pathology and surgical techniques. Our visiting private gynecologic staff represents many different training programs with varied approaches to surgical management.  It is anticipated that the resident will be exposed to a large volume of vaginal surgery, abdominal surgery, minimally invasive surgery and urogynecologic procedures during this rotation.

Float Night

Weekday night call is a night rotation in which the resident works from early evening until the next morning on Sunday - Thursday nights. Each weekend is free until Sunday evening.


The resident can develop a one-month rotation to enhance their education. Elective rotations have included pathology, vulvar dermatology, menopausal medicine and breast pathology/radiology. Rotations off-site are allowed.
