Program Overview

The Saint Peter’s University Hospital/Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School Residency Program in Obstetrics and Gynecology is designed to provide a structured educational environment, which allows for the professional development of suitably qualified physicians to confidently and skillfully be prepared for their anticipated role as primary-care providers in the practice of general obstetrics and gynecology. Our program cultivates an interest and enthusiasm for a career in academic medicine, by championing the concept of lifelong learning. The program is aware that some residents may plan on further training in fellowship programs, and to this end we provide all residents with clinical experiences and didactic background in the boarded subspecialties within our discipline. Throughout the four years this program provides a progressive increase in resident responsibilities, leading to independent caretaking activities, under faculty supervision, in the residents fourth year.
