Conferences, Lectures and Seminars
The residents are provided with four hours of protected teaching time every Wednesday from 8:00am-12:00pm. M&M conference is scheduled once monthly with frequent joint OB/NICU M&M that is attended by our designated perinatal center. Our didactic schedule is designed to prepare for CREOG examinations as well as for practical clinical care. Additionally there is a weekly ACOG Practice Bulletin review and weekly textbook chapter reviews at round table discussions with different attending physicians.
Residents are required to complete a project prior to graduating from the residency program.
Family planning is an essential aspect of comprehensive women’s reproductive healthcare. ACGME requires abortion training be integrated into residency training programs. As such, family planning training is integrated into clinical rotations starting in the first year. Residents rotate through the Fantus Family Planning Clinic at Cook County Hospital to complete these requirements. Residents have an "opt-out" option for elective abortions
Professional, personal and research mentorship is very important to our program. Residents are chosen by a mentor usually within the first six months.
