Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology

Quillen College of Medicine

Residency Program

Welcome Prospective OB/GYN Residency Candidates!

 

Comprehensive training in general obstetrics and gynecology as well as the sub-specialties of reproductive endocrinology and infertility, maternal fetal medicine, gynecologic oncology, female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery (urogynecology), and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) are offered in this close-knit university-based program.

Our small program allows residents to have personal connection with faculty members for mentoring and to develop life-long relationships. 

The utilization of a human patient simulator and other simulation models provides the residents experience with more complex or rarely seen situations. ResidentDidactic Sessionsare intended to reinforce clinical experiences and to provide additional exposure to various topics.

Didactics include the following components: Continuous Quality Improvement; Grand Rounds; Resident Lecture Series; CREOG/Prolog Review; Critical Appraisal of Medical Literature; Coding; EHR; and various other recurring sessions. Five hours each week are protected from interruptions for Resident Didactics. A research project is required by the end of the third year. 

If you are interested in applying for a residency position, please send us your application through the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS). We encourage you to consider our program and hope you will request an interview with the ETSU Obstetrics and Gynecology Residency Program.

We look forward to meeting you at your interview.
