OB/GYN Residency Program

The faculty and residents of the University of Mississippi Medical Center would like to thank you for your interest in our program. UMMC is designated as the only Level III referral center in the state and receives high-risk maternity and gynecological patients from all 82 counties in Mississippi as well as from the adjoining states of Louisiana, Arkansas and Alabama.

Our program currently consists of 22 residents divided into four classes. Our residents have completed their medical school training at UMMC, Louisiana State University School of Medicine – Shreveport, University of South Alabama, University of Arkansas, University of South Carolina, Southern Illinois University, University of Tennessee, University of Texas in San Antonio, Alabama College of Osteopathic Medicine, Edward Via Virginia College of Osteopathic Medicine, and Mercer University, among others. Our program contains approximately 20% male and 80% female.

Our staff members include generalists, physicians, and nurse practitioners trained in gynecologic oncology, reproductive endocrinology, urogynecology and maternal-fetal medicine. We also have an excellent three-year maternal-fetal medicine fellowship that accepts two fellows each year.

The faculty and residents at UMMC have established a tradition of teaching and learning proven to develop outstanding obstetricians and gynecologists practicing across Mississippi and numerous locations throughout the United States.

Resident knowledge and experience are gained on all OB/GYN services through core didactics, conferences, rounds and daily supervision by faculty. Additional experience gained by each resident occurs during his/her participation in the educational process of other residents and third- or fourth-year medical students.

GOAL

The goal of the OBGYN residency program is to prepare physicians for independent practice in general obstetrics and gynecology. At the completion of residency, trainees will be eligible for board certification.

The objectives of the program are based on CREOG Educational Objectives: Core curriculum in obstetrics and gynecology, 12th ed. These objectives are covered in the clinical rotations and didactics.
