PGY-4 Year

Obstetrics & Gynecology Residency Programs

PGY-4 Resident picture ob gyn nurseryThe major objective of the PGY-4 year is for each resident to function as a senior resident on each of the major services.

Staff Obstetrics

As the senior resident on the obstetric services, the resident will oversee both normal and high-risk obstetric management. Extensive experience is available in medical and surgical complications of pregnancy. The senior obstetric resident serves as a liaison between the generalist and maternal-fetal medicine faculty and the resident staff.

Staff Gynecology

The senior resident is responsible for all operative and non-operative aspects of inpatient care on this service. Training includes advanced laparoscopic surgery, urogynecologic surgery, cystoscopy, and vaginal hysterectomy. Extensive experience in the management of outpatient gynecologic problems is obtained with direct supervision of the gynecology faculty.

GYN Oncology

The resident will assist in the care of patients with a multitude of problems related to gynecologic malignancies. Surgery will be performed under direct supervision of the gynecologic oncology staff.


The purpose of this rotation is to introduce the third-year resident to evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment of women with pelvic floor disorders. The fourth-year resident is responsible for running the service and will also operate and see clinic patients at our North East location. The residents are both exposed to minimally invasive surgical approaches to treat prolapse and incontinence including laparoscopic, robotic, and vaginal surgery. The residents will also be exposed to extensive minimally invasive gynecologic surgery including the evaluation and treatment of patients with endometriosis and uterine fibroids. 

Night Float

The resident will oversee all the ob/gyn activities between 5:30 pm and 7:00 am Sunday through Thursday nights.

Ambulatory Care

The resident will refine their management of ob/gyn issues during this rotation. This resident will be responsible for managing resident staffing of outpatient clinics and serve as a learning resource for the junior residents.
