The Division of General Obstetrics and Gynecology was first organized with 3 full time faculty members. Since then the division has steadily grown into a group of 13 full-time faculty members. The division is one of the largest, strongest, and most diversified General Divisions of Obstetrics and Gynecology in academic centers throughout this region. Our university setting continues to offer a unique academic career opportunity for the general obstetrician-gynecologist.
The division members not only devote time to their faculty based practice in obstetrics and gynecology, but also pursue a wide range of individualized academic interests. These areas involve clinically-oriented specialization, clinically based research and a wide range of educational and administrative activities. We continue to play an ever-important role in the education of residents and medical students. We are actively involved in the division and the department as well as throughout the School of Medicine and nearby community. Additionally, many of our members are involved in regional and national organizations involving women’s health. Some which include the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists(ACOG), Association of Professors of Gynecology and Obstetrics(APGO), North American Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Gynecology (NASPAG), American Urogynecologic Society(AUGS), American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology(ASCCP) and The Infectious Diseases Society for Obstetrics and Gynecology (IDSOG). This special opportunity is a stimulus for continued professional growth, developing our faculty into leaders in women’s health and associated healthcare areas.
