Welcome to the University of Connecticut Obstetrics and Gynecology residency program website. We are very proud of our residents who graduate as outstanding clinicians, teachers, researchers and scholars in Obstetrics and Gynecology.
The clinical volume that each resident cares for is excellent and we focus on all aspects of Obstetrics and Gynecology with strong subspecialty involvement in the curriculum. We have three hospitals: UConn which is a small academic medical center, Hartford Hospital, a large inner city hospital and The Hospital of Central Connecticut, a moderate size community hospital, both of which are affiliates of UConn. We have a large teaching faculty so that residents see multiple ways to handle any given situation. Residents are actively involved in teaching her/his colleagues, junior residents and medical students and there is an emphasis on teaching. We have developed a strong journal club with an emphasis on statistics and clinical research design to teach evidence based medicine. We constantly evaluate the performance of our residents and faculty in order to improve our program and are currently redesigning our curriculum.
Finally, there are more than 80 hours in a week and there is much more to life than medicine. We understand that when the work is done time should be devoted to family, friends, fun and recreation.
We appreciate your interest, hope that you enjoy our website and look forward to hearing from you.
