Current calendar rotation
During the first year of training, residents will receive a broad introduction to the field of obstetrics and gynecology as well as general medicine. The second year of training is designed to provide increasing responsibility in general obstetrics and gynecology as well as exposure to the subspecialties of Maternal-Fetal Medicine and Gynecologic Oncology. During the third year, residents rotate through Urogynecology and Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and may also pursue an elective. The fourth year of training will prepare residents as qualified practitioners in all aspects of women’s healthcare. In addition to advanced technical training, chief residents take on administrative duties of the service and assuming primary responsibility under faculty supervision.
When obstetrics and gynecology patients are admitted to Beaumont Hospital, Dearborn, they are placed under the care of an OB/Gyn resident and an attending physician. Residents work closely with the patients and attending physicians, receiving hands-on training and instruction. As training continues, residents become more confident and are given more autonomy in the medical and surgical management of obstetric and gynecological patients.
Throughout the four years of training, residents are assigned one half-day per week in the ambulatory clinic. This continuity clinic provides residents the opportunity to learn about ambulatory obstetrics and gynecology and to build long-term relationships with patients. Residents have the opportunity to work with generalist faculty and subspecialists in these clinics, as well as in their private practices.
Our program also places an emphasis on primary care education for wellness and prevention for women of all ages. Residents serve rotations in Beaumont's family practice centers in nearby communities. This partnering with family practice strengthens physicians in both disciplines.
Residents are encouraged to participate at all levels of clinical care and research, to contribute in a meaningful manner to all administrative affairs that affect the residency program, and to function in a broader sense as a member of an integrated healthcare team.
