Goals and objectives

Our residency program offers outstanding resources for general obstetrics and gynecology and subspecialties, plus a strong base in ambulatory care.

Our goal is to help residents gain the experience and skills they need to become successful healthcare practitioners. Our well-rounded program includes outpatient training, inpatient care of complex patients and a structured didactic curriculum that meets all Residency Review Committee (RRC) accreditation requirements and Council on Resident Education in Obstetrics and Gynecology (CREOG) objectives.

The educational objectives for our residency training program are as follows:

  • To train competent and compassionate clinicians who will deliver state-of-the-art complete health care for women in a humane and personalized manner
  • To provide a solid foundation in general obstetrics and gynecology to prepare the resident for a career in general obstetrics and gynecology or fellowship training
  • To provide residents with a basic understanding of, and appreciation for, research methodology within our specialty. Our goal is to help each resident develop the ability to critically evaluate medical literature and develop a scholarly approach to patient care which she/he will maintain throughout her/his career
  • To help our residents develop a true appreciation and understanding of the diversity within our nation so that they can provide medical care in a compassionate, nonjudgmental manner

The Ohio State University/Mt. Carmel Health Residency Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology provides training in the art and science surrounding our specialty. We provide the tools and training for graduates to provide evidence-based care in a compassionate, non-judgmental fashion. Upon completion of the training, our graduates will be prepared to practice the full breadth and depth of obstetrics and gynecology. They are well-prepared for practice in either an academic or community setting. They will be prepared to enter any accredited fellowship program and to enter a research career. The two health systems that are part of our program primarily provide care to the patients of Central Ohio. We strive to create an inclusive work environment and have programs in place to recruit residents of diverse backgrounds. In addition, because of our large footprint, we provide excellent care for patients from all across Ohio as well as northern Kentucky and the western part of West Virginia.
