Message From the Obstetrics Fellowship Program Director
Our fellowship is tailored towards that applicant who is very passionate about women’s health. The fellowship includes training in high risk OB, C-sections, general and inpatient gynecological procedures, ultrasound, rotation with subspecialists and faculty development. Fellows will have opportunities to teach while learning to be well rounded family physicians.
Our patient population is mostly underserved, and caring for them will give you a personal and professional sense of fulfillment.
The fellowship is very busy, but we make time to have fun, in an environment that thrives on care, friendship and highly dedicated faculty. We are a family here and truly care for each other’s wellness.
